Here is the traditional Japanese kintsugi method. “Regular” kintsugi uses a fine 24Kt. gold powder. This is ideal for a piece that will mainly be looked at. (The fine gold will wear off if you polish it hard, so this is not ideal for items in heavy use.) (Sorry––the full, slower version with descriptions is only for my students and customers.) You can find out more about kintsugi, learn about classes, or commission repairs at http://www.urushi.info.
