    That is awesome!!! Do you want black glue or clear? I have so black glue that works on anything.

    I love that jug

    Thanks Truth! I didn't even think about the color. Maybe I can put some black die in the 2 ton epoxy. I'm guessing it held some strong whiskey . It will make some good mancave decor

    I use gorilla glue two part epoxy on fixes like this....it is permanent and great for uncomplicated restorations like yours.

    Go to Michaels or look at their web site for china repair. Forgot to ask the lady what the name was but she offered to repair a ceramic vase for me with this stuff. Asked her how she got the cracks to blend so well (you couldn't see them without magnification) She told me it was a special technique. When I pressed her she said, "I just finessed them with a little spit." Also, she took some scrapings off the bottom, ground them to powder and mixed with the glue to fill a spot that the piece got lost.

    I've used this Remodeling Your Kitchen Should You Get A Dishwasher Mesmerizing Tips - ramcet.com# for chips on cups etc. Believe it or not you can color match it with sharpie pens. I'll ask her the name of the stuff next time I see her. You should be able to find it at Michaels.

    Thanks Boogey! There is a Michael's right around the corner from my house. I'll check em out. That would be nice to not see the repair crack
