This is a spin-off from 'Benzine's 'what do you do with your pottery seconds' thread.
I've generated a couple of broken raku plates (single, clean fracture). These are intended to be decorative only. I'm considering repairing and selling.
This would obviously have to be a very clean repair... and I'm realizing that I'm unsure how to proceed. I'm assuming that crazy glue is the way to go... but what's the best way to secure the halves until they set? There's no easy way to clamp or bind the halves, since any non-horizontal force will cause them to buckle.
Am I just going to have to firmly hold the halves in place? I'm worried that my hands will move too much...
Note- I'm planning to put some kind of backing on after gluing the halves... maybe felt (to allow for easier hanging).
(OffCenter - maybe half jokingly- recommended Kintsugi in another thread. Between the cost and the poison-ivy-like effects, I'm a bit scared to go there)
