    This around 1880 ring, 18th revival, had a bad issue on the enamel front.
    Repair proceed I attempted:
    1/ filled the cracks with polymer clay, put it in the oven at 110 celsius for 10 minuts.
    2/ colored the repair with permanent markers with blendes to lighten colors.
    3/ applied resin varnish to secure the polymer in place.
    4/ unpolished with nail buffer to get the mate effect it had originally.

    Et voilà :-))

      Sure hope that's a finger it's on in the 2nd pic! Well, nobody else wanted to say it. So I did! LMFAO!!!
    9. kyratango kyratango, 7 years ago
      Hey Bb2! Why "hope" it is a finger?
      Some fantasy in this matter would be nice for adding some hot spice to life ;-P
      Thanks for your funny input, makes my day, lol!
