How about...Finish it as suggested, break it in smaller pieces as suggested, put a nice thick gloss finish on the pieces, and do a mosaic piece - no one ever said you can't grout foam board! Just arrange the chunks on a board, glue, and grout - THEN frame it!

I like that, too! If you polycrylic-ed the heck out of it, you could even use it as a tabletop!

Oooo!  I like that one, and actually you could skip the grout part, just have a recess in your tabletop and pour in the resin!

I would finish the piece then rip it in other places and then mount it to uncut mat board and turn it into a piece of altered art (I didn't read anyone else's suggestions so someone else may have already suggested this)  it's absolutely beautiful and should become something amazing.  There is no such thing as an accident or error just an opportunity for exploring your creativity in an avenue that you didn't expect.

Wow thanks everyone! I kinda of like that idea...finishing it and then breaking in into smaller pieces and making a mosaic out of it. It could be cool especially with my technique. I've been told that this piece reminds someone of stained glass so a mosaic could all to that. Well I do think that I will finish it...I haven't totally decided what I will do after that Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

If I'm not mistaken -- this sounds a lot like Multimedia art board (which is a synthetic resin mixed with alpha cellulose.... or something). Anyways, I've seen this stuff stitched - literally - on a sewing machine, chopped, sawed, burnt, glued. Everything. This stuff is a tank and outside of being snap-instead-of-bend-able, it's really quite awesome.

It really is a shame that it snapped like that, but all isn't lost. There's still loads you could do with it, I think. I like the idea of the ACEO's -- you could also use what's left of it to make greeting cards or something.... something so you feel like all isn't lost and it turned out handy after all.

 Hey...

 If you've already done the fix on Photoshop at a fair resolution, print it on to watercolor paper
and finish the piece with pencil crayon or the original media.

 I'd like to see the solution you came to for this work.
