If you break a ceramic and don't have cement type glue, you can use the white of an egg for glue. Crack the egg and dip a toothpick or maybe a Q-tip in the white thats left on the shell. It works the same as glue.

If its paper you're wanting to glue, use a paste made from flour and water. You'll get a white glue similar to the white glue that comes in a squeeze bottle.

RE: Homemade Glue

For paper glue i have always used egg white when I have run out of PVA glue. An art project I helped my niece do for school recently was to make a picture of a face from cut out pieces of a magazine - she had no glue so we cracked open an egg and used the white. It's a perfect paper glue.
