Decrative Candle Repair?

819 2
Hey every one I have these great old fashion candles that were my moms when i was growing up and now i have them. but now a few of them are cracked and just being held on by the wicks. does any one know of a way to secure it back together? obviously i could just hold a lighter to it and get it all melty but i figured that would ruin the coloring on the outside. any other ideas?? I really want to save these.

My Dollar Tree sells really tiny, individual applicators of Crazy Glue. Maybe drip some down into the candle & then gently wrap the candle with some rubber bands to hold it together and press the glue down?

Good luck with whatever you try!

What about using another cheep white candle wax, melting it and brushing the melted wax into the cracks. It would I think be a small enough amount of wax added that it should dry almost clear and not diminish the colors.
