      Put on rubber gloves to protect hands from any sharp edges

      Prepare surface to be glued by cleaning pieces with soapy water and toothbrush or gentle scrubbing pad
      Rinse and allow pieces to dry thoroughly

      Prepare a positioning box by filling a shallow container 3/4 full with dry rice or dried beans

      Use paintbrush to apply glue to only one of the broken edges
      Apply only enough glue to cover the edge

      Join pieces together with a swift movement
      Apply light pressure and avoid any back and forth motions
      Do not remove any glue that oozes from joint

      Set clay pot carefully in positioning box in a balanced position
      Allow pot to dry for at least one hour

      Gently scrape off excess glue with razor blade
      Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to remove any remaining glue

      Place repaired clay pot back in positioning box for at least 24 hours
      Ensure the piece has completely dried
