If the crack goes all the way through, use some frog tape on the outside of the bowl and just make sure everything gets wet with thin CA glue. Then fill it with some black sand, but don’t come flush with the surface, just fill in the bulk. I saturate the sand with thin CA and let dry. Then you can put some thin CA down on top and lay your stone in and heap it up to well over the surface so it will sand down smooth. There is almost always some void in the inlay, which is good or you can repeat until smooth.

As for mixing the inlay from inlace, I never use a kit, I buy stones and powders online and ca in several different viscosities, mostly thin and med. Thick takes too long.

Any questions, feel free to msg me.
