Repaired!

Good News!

I was able to repair the collar for the miniature millinery block I unboxed. (see that video here: https://youtu.be/z5Ca-VjeYSE )

I talked with a couple friends who are curators and did a little research on repairing plaster. Then, over three sessions, I repaired the collar part of the millinery block. It had broken into 3 large pieces and a chip. (there was an area of old loss previously there.) I am pleased with the repair visually. I do not know how strong it is. I won’t be wiggling it to find out. This piece will be a display piece among my full size millinery blocks. It will be getting a cushion and storage support of its own though.
