Dug this pontiled Vichy Water about a year ago with a lot of broken china. It does have a big crack going down the reverse side but very hard to see unless in direct light. I have only done a light cleaning on the exterior and nothing but a rinse on the interior because I didn't want to exacerbate the crack or more devastatingly, break it.

I've never done that before. Does the resin soak into the crack? I'd love to try it, any ideas about a good website to check out?
You can find glass repair kits on ebay or in auto sections at stores. Sometimes it wants you to use a razor to open up the crack. Other times it can be applied directlyftom a tube or bottle. If on the outside, I'd tape off where you don't want resin on the glass as it can get messy.

Great, thanks. I love this bottle and I'm very nervous about doing more damage. However, I think I'll try it first on some other bottle and see how I do. Thanks for the info.
