How To Make Your Broken Crockery Fabulous Using Gold Kintsugi
Everyone has heard the horrible, shattering sound of crockery breaking!
I absolutely hate it but I do keep my broken pieces of crockery for plant pot drainage but now I can fix things with this fabulous Humade Kintsugi kit from mora approved.
I have to warn you now that it is a two man job, well mine was.
I love the gold gilded effect the powder has given.
I think a neon pink version would be marvellous but I'm a bit obsessed with neon pink at the moment, I might change my mind when the weather changes .
The first plate that was broken has too many pieces to be put back together.
I was having a heck of a time trying to get it glued together.
It was a pain in the butt and I mixed a bit too much glue (it dries REALLY fast) so mix in small batches if you're doing a plate with more than 2 or 3 broken bits.
This is the mixing - you mix two parts of the glue together that comes in a syringe and the powder.
Paint the glue on and hold your broken bits together for a couple of minutes.
Because I mixed too much glue, I needed another pair of hands.
I didn't want to waste the glue so my other half held the first set of broken pieces together while I glued the final bit of plate and held it on.
The result is pretty special!
Here is a little collage of all the steps in the Kintsugi process ^_^
