Ceramic Bunny Repair?

We have a ceramic bunny whose ears broke off. How do we fix it? I'd like to make new ears for it but do not know how. Thank you.

I might try making ears with a polymer craft clay such as Fimo or Sculpey (available at Michaels in the US), baking them per clay instructions, and then using glue to adhere them to the bunny's body. If the bunny won't be handled too much, hot glue probably would be fine. Otherwise you might want to go with epoxy for a stronger bond. Then paint to match, followed by a coat of clear gloss or glaze (also at craft stores) if needed.

To look professional, you would have to put the cement in a mold, then glue on the base, paint the same color and put glaze on it.

You did not say if you had the ears still, or even if they were broken in pieces. If is is possible I would try and glue the ears back on (if you have them) "Gorilla" has a quick dry glue or E6000 is an industrial glue which is good for crafts, but you have to wait 24 hours for it to dry.

A little trivia---in Japan if some thing of value is broken they "glue" the pieces together with Gold.
