Consolidate joins on lip, improve existing repair by painting
Previous repaired join and crack to lip of bottle weak. Old repair fill discoloured and was not painted a colour which blended with the natural surface colour of the bottle.
Previous joins consolidated with 10% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in acetone/Industrial methylated spirits (ethanol,methanol) applied with a micropipette. Existing repair retouched over painted fill using Golden Acrylics diluted with water applied with a sable brush.
