i need to repair 6 coconut mugs (they're brand new, but my parents didnt package them well) ~ the mugs are intact, but i can feel they're cracking along the mold line (seam)
what glue should i use..and do i use it on the inside only?
so i dont annoy our guests with dribble drinks, i'll use these repaired mugs as holders for umbrellas n such..
thanks for the advice
(who will probably have stuck together fingers after this craft project!)

I would say super glue gel, but I have never glued ceramics before.

You can buy liquid crazy glue suitable for ceramics, I have repaired MANY including a Tiki Farm suffering bastard mug with this stuff. Quite runny, it gets right into the seams and cracks very nicely. I'll check out the brand when I get home if ya like!

Good ol' Super Glue will do the trick...The ceramic is poreous (did I spell that right?) and will 'suck' in the Super Glue to the crack, just apply it to the inside of the mug if you can.
