RESIN
RESTORATION PROCESS

Sergio Bustamante

The Princess of Shanghai 

This large, resin sculpture of The Princess of Shanghai with flowing hair and dress was a difficult piece to restore. The 30-inch tall and approximately 30-pound sculpture was damaged during a move. The piece needed special attention at the base because the weight of the sculpture balances from the damaged ball area.
