My question on this topic is more with regard to the board holding up during laying the floor with the fireclay-sand paste...first experience with the stuff and in starting today...the few bricks I had to re-lay came up with clay on them but the clay also took up a bit of the board...anyone have like experience?
Any input is greatly appreciated!
Best

Dutch - I saw that as well. I made the mistake of making a slurry of the clay. When you get that stuff wet, it turns into an adhesive. When I adjusted the brick - it did lift some of the product. All said, level the brick with DRY product.

I just put down my floor bricks using 1:1 mix of dry fire clay (reconstituted sludge from bottom of wet saw tray) and sand. I used it dry. It works well.

Thanks guys...I had done that in the past and was going to do so this time but...thought of the new instructions encouraging the use of a paste...will mis the products dry and move forward...
All the best!
