paper clay spackle

Paper clay can repair even completely separated pieces.
Whether it is worth it depends on how far along the
jar was when you saw the crack.

To make, 1 cup powdered clay of same type of clay to mend,
2 cups of dissolved unscented one ply (Scott) toilet tissue,
2 cups of water (or until it makes peanut butter consistency),
one spoonful of vinegar or bleach if you are going to keep
it around, but I make it fresh when I need it.
Blend. Use like spackle.

I made a giant batch of it and let it dry in the sun, so now
I have this dessicated "loaf" of it and I can file off a bit
of it and rehydrate whenever I need some to repair or if I
am joining something tricky.
