How to Repair Ceramic & Porcelain Flower Vases with CA Glue
1 min reading time
We know how devastating it is when your beautiful vase breaks, and sometimes getting a new one may never replace its sentimental value. Luckily, CA glue can restore your broken ceramic or porcelain vase! To repair with CA glue:
Clean the broken edges of the ceramic piece thoroughly. You can use soap and water, or rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or debris.
Apply a small amount of superglue to one of the broken edges. You only need a small amount, as too much glue can cause the ceramic to become brittle and more prone to breaking in the future.
Align the two broken pieces and hold them in place until the glue sets. You may need to use a clamp or weight to keep the pieces in place while the glue dries.
Once the glue is dry, you can smooth any rough edges or excess glue with a fine grit sandpaper. Note that we don't encourage sanding the broken parts before gluing, since this will likely eat away too much of the surface, leaving the edges unaligned.
We recommend to use our EM-150 Starbond Multi-purpose Medium CA. With an oil-like consistency, this glue has properties of both our thin CA and thick CA products, making it ideal for filling small gaps, penetrating narrow slots, bonding close-fitting parts.
