I have several Vases that I would like to use, however they leak. It's a slow leak, I believe through the crazing. The water seems to sweat through the sides and bottom of the vase. What can I do? I'm thinking of a liquid silicone solution that I can pour into the vase and then pour back out?


I've had no experience with a liquid silicone but I can tell you what I learned from another McCoy collector. She uses her vases for fresh flowers and I noticed she inserted the proper size zip lock plastic baggy inside the vase and put water into it...seemed to work great about keeping the water from leaking out.
