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.
Detail of the bird, after treatment.
