I have some clay pots that are cracked and want to know if anyone has an idea of something I can paint on it or cover them with to hold them together?
Also, does anyone know of a glue, adhesive, or other substance to glue pots back together that have broken? Have tried super glue and it was not super.
Thanks so much. ~~~ Carol
I've seen some programs where they drill small holes on both sides of the crack and wire it together but that seems like a lot of work. Have you tried epoxy glue?
I consider broken pots as recyclable material. I use the shards to cover the hole in the bottom of pots, add it as mulch to keep squirrels from digging around certain plants, and used them at one time as a de-clogger for my chipper/shredder. Glazed pots that break are now saved for future use if I ever try mosaics.
Haven't tried epoxy yet, waiting to see what is suggested. I've got plenty of small broken pieces that will just be used in a variety of ways. I'm really taking about the one's that are small/slight cracks or a few broken pieces separated, not the ones that are broken into a hundred pieces. lol
Gorilla Glue is unbelievable...I have used it for many things and it is hard to imagine how well it bonds...just don't use alot, it foams up and bubbles out...but for clay pots, it's wonderful!!!!!! ceramic ones, too...Deb
