Mending Ceramics With Sugru

We had an adorable ceramic bank that was broken...Sugru to the rescue! Using three pieces of Sugru, we were able to mend the ceramic piece with a little extra flair!

Step 1: Assess the Damage and Get Your Supplies Together

This is a pretty major break. However, since the main section of the bank remained intact, we can use Sugru to cover up the damage. Here's what we used. If you have a similar issue, you can change up the colors!

  • one pack of black Sugru
  • one pack of yellow Sugru
  • two packs of red Sugru

Step 2: Mend the Largest Section of Damage

Not much Sugru comes in a packet, but it does go a long way! We were able to fix the main section of damage using just one pack of Sugru. You can mold Sugru very much like Play-Doh.

Step 3: Make It Pretty!

For extra strength (and prettiness!), we added a flower to our bank. The flower was molded out of three pieces of Sugru.

Step 4: Let the Sugru Set

The Sugru should harden for at least 24 hours. Now enjoy your mended masterpiece!
