Do you have a plate of your favorite china with a chip. I do. It's a large platter and I didn't have the heart to throw it out, so I kept it. For what? Not sure, but this morning I was watching Martha Stewart on Good Morning America, and she said to break it into several small pieces and glue onto a frame, planter etc. then fill the gaps with mortar, and after it dries for a couple of days, coat with a sealer.
Just like the Romans did and make a mosaic. I can't wait to get that plate down from the attic.
