Hi-
my CD ruins kits came,well, broken up. I am piecing the plaster back together.

what is a good glue to "glue" plaster? The plaster seems to absorb the epoxy I'm using.

Thanks

i use a 5 minute epoxy glue (mix together 2 parts) to glue the plaster back together, then rub some ready mixed interior filler over the area once the glue has gone off. Then rescribe the detail into the plaster.

the mix of glue and plaster gives a good strong joint.

if its a big piece then strengthen with bits of metal rod to hold the 2 pieces together

I've never had any problems using plain PVA glue to put plaster buildings (back) together.
