New development on that one… turns out the flower was rather delicate and decided to take off after a steaming boil… currently refreshing the original Kintsugi repair, albeit with a simpler approach.

Thanks! Applied the gold powder last night… fortunately it only a refreshment was needed, so less waiting times required to repair.

Although it’s spoken for by now, I’m still sharing the just finished result of the Kintsugi refreshment.

But worry do not, more red(and more prestigious ones at that) are in preparation… :mrgreen:

Looks much better than the original repair, and I think better than what the pot might have looked like unbroken, great job!

I always thought gold was mixed in with whatever holds the pieces together, but your pics inspired me to watch an instructional video to better understand what's going on. Now waiting for my next breakage with a little less apprehension.

Thanks @bliss & @teatray.

It’s a common misconception that gold is mixed into the binding agent. I blame the non traditional, artificial resin DIY sets… I also found that often times a little gold/silver repair actually improves the look of some pots quite a bit!
