How to fix a terra cotta pot?

NikkiEmClay B


I got a very nice painted and fired terra cotta pot from a trash bin. The pot is severly cracked. I must repair the cracks before I can plant in it and was wondering what kind of cement works best? Or glue...I wasn't sure!

    2 part epoxy called JB WELD but make sure to get Waterproof version. It's white and works like a putty. You don't have to put it inside the crack either. You can smear it over the crack from the inside of the pot. The crack showing on outside of pot will just add character.

    E6000 will hold up to most outdoor conditions so should work for a flower pot.
