    Artifact repair

    I need help! I've been trying to restore some of my brokeen points, but the putty I've tried doesn't bond or sculpt very well. So to you guys that repair your own, what do you use? The two I have tried are milli-put, and sculpt-it. Thanks in advance.
    Also, if you have any pics of repair during the different stages, it would be helpful to see those as well.

    I recently sent Gomer an email requesting estimates on some of my better heartbreakers. I just want to learn how to repair the points that aren't worth the money to send off to a pro.
    Thanks Cluton! Where did ou buy it? I've been buying the stuff I try at Hobby Lobby.

    What little I have done, I used the body putty like stuff you can buy at HomeDepot.
    Not all those who wander are lost.

    I've never seen a good restoration job done with a dremel. Use a slower hardening putty like Apoxy-Sculpt and carve flaking before full hardening with knife blades to make them look accurate. JMO.
