The Japanese have been doing it for centuries but itís all the rage now in the West. They sell the kits at the Ceramics fairs. I have one for silver and one for gold. Originally I think they used real gold but now itís a gold coloured resin, or epoxy glue thatís painted over with gold lacquer. Tbh, I find it horrible.

I have had people contacting me to ask if I have any cracked pots that I don't want. I am tempted to suggest that maybe they could buy a cheap undamaged pot from me and smash it themselves before fixing.
