REVERSIBLE FILLS FOR TRANSPARENT AND TRANSLUCENT MATERIALS

SANDRA DAVISON


ABSTRACT—This article describes materials and methods for gap-filling transparent and translucent artifacts. By far the greater number of objects in this category are those made of glass. Consequently, the methods and materials described are those that have been developed and used to gap-fill glass vessels. These, of course, can be adapted for use on other transparent and translucent materials, such as some enamels, shells, and semiprecious stones.
