Repairing a Broken Figurine?

I have some old pieces that are broken one has a hand off one piece and one is a small head. I can handle the flat pieces but, the head and the hand do not set even though I stand there and hold it for awhile. How can I stablize the piece for maybe an hour or so to let it dry and set?

Have you considered using a light-gauge wire, Caroline? Make a small cage (like the kind we see holding champagne corks in place), design it so you can tighten it once the glued pieces are in place, but keep it from touching the glue? My only other thought is to make splints for the insides of your figurines. Use contact cement (which dries almost immediately) to attach your splints (one on the hand and one on the arm to which you're attaching the hand) ... well you get my drift. Good luck!
