Using Tisha's Incredible Brushes (TIBs) has more than one benefit. Because the greenware has not been soft fired, if I break the eye opening, I can repair it like new again. Using a wet brush, put any large piece back in place. Add drops of slip and allow to dry to a leather hard stage. Use a feather knife or other sharp object and reshape. Build up until it matches the thickness of the greenware. It may take a few tries, but if you have to throw away the piece you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.
