Sculpting missing pieces

This sculpture came in broken with several missing pieces, in particular the center part of the flower. The missing top flower piece was and made out of clay using the same technique dentists use when capping a tooth. The clay is then fired, cemented, filled in, sanded, polished and painted using air brush. Other missing pieces were made in the same manner. To see more repair examples of a broken statue, broken sculpture, broken china or broken figurine see our restoration examples page.
