Introduction: Rebuild a Broken Statue With Sugru

About: My favorite quotation is: “All you need in order to accomplish something great is a good idea and not quite enough money.” – Anon I live by that theme, and the ideas just keep coming.

Can you guess which eye I had to recreate using sugru?
I'm used to working with plumber's epoxy for fixing everything, so it was a treat to have this product ready-to-use out of the packet. AND it gave me a lot more time to work with than epoxy. AND I could press it into a thinner layer, AND it gave me an incredibly smooth finish.
For this frog's eye, I spread the sugru into a small sheet, then gently--with my fingers and nails--molded it to look like the other eye.
No glueing. Just press it gently into the broken pottery and let it dry overnight.
A lovely material to work with indeed!
