    Ever really wish you didn't

    break something I had the owner of a cleaning company drop off a porcelain vase, very expensive and even more so to repair.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    This small project took all of a day waiting for drying times and sanding and another coat and little more epoxy here and then there. It was a Job Jarrod will never for get !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When this came in he grabbed it while I was a lunch and applied the glue he thought would make the repair. Well it didn't ! The glue did not stick and the handle fell off onto the floor and broke into 3 pieces and some very small pieces that could not be used. I told him today when I finished it, Now you know I know what I'm talking about when I say you don't know everything. He's learning and I think this mishap humbled him for a second...............

    Dave you are more than a magician, you have talents I can't even imagine enough to dream about! Great fix, that is amazing.
    So did you have to paint the handle after the fix? How did you blend it to look "unbroken"?
    Or is the last picture the first, the first the last??

    Looks great, Dave. How'd you get the epoxy to match the porcelain color? Did you add pigment? If so, what kind? (Not as if I could ever get that perfect of a color match...I just wanna know how you color epoxy.)
