Join two segments if possible.
The two sections of the arm ring are in stable condition. An old join (possibly shellac) bonding the two piece together, has failed.
The joining sections of the arm ring were manually cleaned of old adhesive as far as possible, using IMS to soften it, although this had little effect. The arm ring was re-joined using 30% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in 50:50 acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone): IMS (Industrial Methylated Spirits (ethanol,methanol). Small losses (historical) around the join were filled with glass microballoons (silica or phenolic resin) in 30% Paraloid B72. The fill was then inpainted using Liquitex acrylic artist colour (composition unknown) and Golden matting agent.
