I used superglue and it worked. Apply on one side and press both sides together for a while.

Could it be the brand? I used Elephant brand I think - if that helps.

Selley brand? I did try to hold for a while, din work for what I had leh :sad: .
I was looking around & found that these days there are sooooo many different types. Some claim must one side porous, some good for certain materials, some for others. See until :?

hi becontented

no obvious brand name. most words are in japanese. english word writes 'pen type powerful instant adhesive'

with some chinese words seems like is works on porcelain too.

size wise it looks like a marker with white cap, green and black colour on body.

sorry didn't figure out tinypic so can't paste pic.

dh uses it on everything and he proclaimed this is the 'most easiest' to use superglue around.

good luck trying. :xedfingers:
