Use regular or modeling clay as illustrated below to hold the pieces together. If clay is not available, you can fill a container with rice or beans which will hold the repaired piece in place while it cures. Avoid shifting the pieces; small particles may come loose, ruining the repair. Any glue that oozes from the joint can be removed later using a razor blade. Use tweezers to apply small pieces.
