Restoration of Marble Busts of The Hay Library, Brown U.

We collaborated with Brown University to restore their marble busts in the John Hay Library Reading Room. These busts arrived in multiple varieties of disrepair, including deep staining and missing pieces of stone. We carefully analyzed each bust to determine a treatment plan. We then cleaned them, both drawing out resins that had penetrated the stone as well as cleaning the surface. We filled gaps and sealed cracks,fared them at their forms, and in-painted the fills to match the surrounding area. We then waxed and buffed each bust.
