Cracks or chips in art objects and furniture may be easily and quickly filled with DURHAM’S ROCK HARD Water Putty®. The color of the original piece can be matched with a little patience and experimentation as outlined in the section, “How To Color Your Art Objects.”
Ornate picture frames with missing or damaged sections can be duplicated and replaced with DURHAM’S Water Putty. Just make a rubber mold from a corresponding undamaged portion. Visit your art, craft, or hobby store for liquid rubber specially prepared for making such molds. Then make a putty cast from the mold and use it to replace the missing section of the frame.
Hang pictures and artwork with greater holding strength. Place a dab of DURHAM’S into the old nail or wire hole. Insert the nail or wire before DURHAM’S is set and you’ll have an extra strong hanger.
Fill gouges in damaged wood carvings with DURHAM’S ROCK HARD Water Putty. When set, the putty can be carved exactly as you would carve the wood. Return to top.
