yeah...these suggestions sound great but sound so complicated that the pot will probably suffer too much damage. I'm going to take MarshalN's cue and just let it be.

Here's a kit using actual urushi and gold powder........ not sure about the other previous one. Note that using urushi is a serious case of "poison ivy" waiting to happen .

I have an older shui ping with a broken spout ,a torch and a kiln.
I'll post pics when I give it a shot.
Please do! I'd imagine a kiln is the safer route to go. A blowtorch on Yixing may not end up so well! Then again, you could always mold the clay, make sure it's a bit loose to account for the shrinkage, and then fire it separately. Looking forward to hearing your experience.
