OK, I know this question has nothing to do with any kind of model boat hobby!
but, what kind of glue can I or should I use to reglue a Porcelain pitcher my Mother-in-law sent my wife?
It broke in the mail it arrived in about four pieces.
Any idea will help.

superglue !!!!!! use the thinnest you can find and watch out for your fingers.


OR you could try

I have never tried it but I know museums use something like this for repairs.

Hi Haverlock

Thanks for the advice I will look into it!
I tried the thin superglue it was just absorbed by the Porcelain,
how ever I'm going to look into the UV stuff.

If thin superglue is just wicking away have you tried assembling 2 pieces then adding superglue to the joint? It works on balsa wood and I doubt the porcelain is any more absorbent than that.

You could also try a gel ( thicker) superglue.

Have a look at the Hobby Lobby website. They carry a cement specifically for ceramics.

Hi CaptLarry

Thanks for the info, I have glued my wife porcelain pitcher together using Loctite GO2 GEL some thick glue I had left over from one of my last models.
The pitcher is never going to be used, so it for show only which is OK. Thanks again now I know where to get glue to be used on porcelain.

Having seen some reviews of Lazer Bond I wouldn't buy it /I think it needs a more intense light to cure properly

Hi Onetenor

I never thought of claiming anything till now, Bit to late I've already glued it back together!
My mom-in-law doesn't suspect a thing, but my con chance got the better of me.
she knows it was damaged in transit, she doesn't mind it because I was able to repair the thing.
