Introduction

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.

materials

  • Fast-cure clear epoxy (such as PC Clear; $4 for 1 oz., amazon.com)
  • Pin or paper clip
  • Modeling clay
  • Razor blade

steps

  1. Apply the epoxy using a paper clip or pin.

  3. Scrape off any excess epoxy carefully with a razor blade; it should flake right off.
