    I had a stone gnome I fixed using stepping stone concrete. I just had to do it in steps to build the pointed hat back up. It took some time to complete because I did a little and then had to let that dry. I just used waxed paper to sort of make a template and taped it to the top part of the gnome where the hat broke. Once all the layers of concrete were dry I peeled the waxed paper off and then painted it. Looks good as new and has been back in my Pennsylvania garden ever since and still looks good.

    I have the perfect repair products to suggest to you.

    You’ll be able to patch ( or reform lost pieces) with this epoxy putty but you’ll need to repaint the patch with the correct color after the repair.


    Ive repaird so many things with the Oatey epoxy putty stick! Potery statues, wood candlesticks etc. Even a garage laundry sink with a hole ( thanks for hiding that defect with carrots -previous homeowner).

    It's a two-part epoxy sticky-found at big box hardware stores for about $6.

    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. Its a light grey putty. After your satisfied with the final sanded surface ( if needed) repaint as desired.

    Oatey 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 pottery- wood -ceramics.

    Every home owner crafter or second hand shopper need a 2 part putty epoxy stick!

    You can find other expensive and smaller 2 part epoxy sticks versions in the boat marine and wood repair sections this Oatey one is a great value.
