Melanie Brussat Sculpture Conservation

This fiberglass sculpture by Debanjan Roy had two cracks at the base                                             of the bird's legs.

The cracks ran completely around the surface of the legs, but the                                       armature was intact. 

First, the cracks were filled using a stable, conservation-grade material.

Then the fills were toned to match the color and gloss.
