You’ll only have a couple of minutes to set a broken piece once you apply the glue, so clean the vessel with denatured alcohol, have all your materials ready, and work quickly.
- Fast-cure clear epoxy (such as PC Clear; $4 for 1 oz., amazon.com)
- Pin or paper clip
- Modeling clay
- Razor blade
Apply the epoxy using a paper clip or pin.
Hold the broken piece in place with small pieces of modeling clay; let cure at least 1 hour.
Scrape off any excess epoxy carefully with a razor blade; it should flake right off.
