Introduction: Fix Broken Wine Glass Foot
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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

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.
Step 2: Baking
Now make sure there are no fingerprints on the glass. You've probably dirt your hands while modeling the base and if you leave any fingerprint on the glass it will also harden in the baking process.
Bake it for 30 min at 110ºC (230ºF), let it go cold... and that's it!
**Wash the glass before use**
