Where Broken Becomes Beautiful

It is very important to practice the process with a test piece before trying to gold and glue on one of your valued items.

Step 1: Break the Test Piece

Wrap the test piece in an old towel, go outside, or place it in a box. Wear protective glasses and gloves. Turn the piece upside down and tap with a hammer or flathead screwdriver until a break has been achieved.
