Accidents happens and while it's unfortunate that a beloved glass ornament has been chipped, it's not a tragedy that can't be reversed. The only thing you need to do is be wary of the chipped piece and act on time. Here is a simple guide on how to glue a glass chip back to where it belongs.
Cleaners Brunswick suggest that you act on the spot, because putting off the repair for a later time may result in you losing the chipped piece and now that will be a tragedy you can't reverse. Plus, it's also quite possible for the glass ornament to suffer further damage and then the repair will be only one of your distant and wild fantasies. The glue best suited for the job should contain epoxy resin within its formula, because that way the glue will be durable, water proof and will have a considerably shorter drying period.Naturally, before you start you need to think about your safety and that means wearing latex gloves, which will save you both from those pesky sharp edges on both the piece and the ornament and the unpleasant stickiness of the glue. After all you are not doing art. Next, comes the preparation of the glass. You should wash both the ornament and the piece and then have them dried for best results.
Mix the glue as the instructions say and then with a toothpick spread the glue on the body of glass the piece was chipped off. The reason for a toothpick is to reduce the amount of glue, which will go on the glass. Since the glue dries exceptionally quick, its excess is nigh impossible to remove. That is why you have to be careful and when you add too much, use the clean part of the toothpick clean off the excess.
Cleaning Brunswick teams propose the following trick. Use a clean pick to help position the chipped glass by pushing on it. This helps with the bonding process. After a minute, the glass should be in a good condition.
