    Some cultures believe that broken pieces should have the cracks accented as "that is how the light gets in"...the man who could speak to all lovers also wrote a song that has this concept in it. A national hero in my heart, lol, the one and only Leonard Cohen, Canadian born and bred. Bwahahhaaa. Just an idea amongst the many to consider. Good luck finding your solution and have a lovely summer.

    Spray paint with textured paint ...some look like sand and come in many colors.

    You can get those glass stones from dollar tree and glue them on, or crack some mirror or cups and glue those on!

    cover it/fill in cracks with clay,spackle,caulk, sand it down some after it dries then paint(you may need to seal depending if it is going to hold anything moist)

    Hello—my go to miracle repair tip is the Oatey epoxy putty stick. I find it easy to work and this clay like putty can be sculpted and fill defects. It does harden in a few minutes and will dry a gray color can be sanded or drilled and will needing painting unless its final gray color works for your repair.p

    It's a two-part epoxy sticky-found at big box hardware stores in the plumbing department near the pvc purple glue. In a clear plastic red capped tube. I get mine at Lowes $6. Home Depots its version and JB Weld is another but more $ and smaller. Other smaller 2 part epoxy sticks options can also be found in the boat marine and wood repair shopping sections.

    You mix -press -then you can use scrape off excess (I use depleted gift card) and/or sand and paint. Cured putty is strong enough to drill through.

    Putty safely seals/waterproofs for plumbing boat repairs.... Ive used it for exterior entry door frame wood rot repair, elliptical pedal repair, multiple arts and crafts repair of damaged pottery- wood -ceramics, plug up holes in planters, repair cracks in planters or make a new lip on the pottery planter. Ive repaired holes in a utility garage sink ( thanks previous HO) repaired a break in the top rim border of an elliptical peddle, repaired damages in a concrete statue, fixed a split wood disk on a wind chime, its a great defect filler, those ornately detailed gold plaster frames and be repaired with this putty and wood filler.

    Its a product I might suggest you try -It will be a gray repair but spray paint would correct that. Hard to say what exactly you are desling with —I might suggest to glue the pot together....then putty for strength, plugging holes —from the inside. Ive plugged bottom pottery planter holes with putty- extremely waterproof and also repaired broken lips of large ceramic planters too.

    Sharpie markers should do the trick.
