Have you ever heard of sugru? It is a relatively new material, a self-setting rubber for fixing and improving stuff. I didn't know about it either, but then my husband ordered it over the internet and I kept making fun of him and how he's going to fix everything with it until I used it myself.
You can do a lot of things with it, for a start I decided to fix my favorite sunglasses I broke beyond repair a couple of months ago:
I took a little piece of sugru and formed it into a ball the size of a pea, then used it to connect the pieces of the broken arm together:
I let it hanging like this to dry for 24 hours and since it was not so stable I repeated the step adding some more sugru :
After 24 hours I decorated the fix with a ball of sugru that I flattened over the side of the connection. I made the pattern using the back of a paintbrush:
And in the end I added a little strass:
Remember: you have to press the gem stone hard into the sugru mass so it doesn't fall of. Mine did :-))
So, what did you fix lately? I'd like to hear about your repairs!
