Crystal Repair broken frosted glass figurineDecember 5th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Figurine, glass sculpture repair
The broken glass leopard is made from borosilicate glass ( pyrex ). This type of glass has a very low expansion coefficient so it can be reheated . There is a small piece missing were the leg broke.
Most pieces of glass can not be fused back together so I use UV cured adhesive .
I used a torch and fused the broken glass leg . I shaped the leg and fill in the area were the chip was missing. I frosted the area to matched .
