I just bought a batch of 4 wine glasses and one of them fell and broke its foot. It was a pity to throw it to the bin so I decided to fix it. For that I used Fimo modelling clay that hardens after 30 min in the oven. It's actually become my favourite glass as it has more grip than the other glasses.

Step 1: Modelling

This clay is divided in 6 portions. To make the base I used 3 of them.

- Make a ball with 2 and a half portions.
- Flatten it till you get the dimension of the base wanted (do this on a tray covered with aluminium paper).
- Place the glass in the middle and make sure it's straight.
- Secure the glass to the base with the half portion left.

How much is the price of this clay , comparred to the price of a new glass ?

The clay was 1€ and a new glass 2€.
Anyway, I'm giving a solution to a problem that, with a creative mind, could be applied for other broken things such as a broken handle.
Awesome! And, if you wanted, you could do glasses with different color bottoms so people can tell whose glass is whose!

That's a great idea! This modelling clay is made in many different colors.

This is great! I love Penolopy's suggestion too. I can't decide if I prefer the main image you have now or the final image of the finished product. . .
