    Fixing shark tooth restoration

    Hey Everyone, I got a couple shark teeth restored and I am very unhappy with the results. Is there any way to have someone else redo the restoration or if not, at least remove the putty/paint? I'm not sure what to do at this point and was hoping there was a way to fix this. Thank you.

    What does restoration means?

    When we see a fossil, for example a trilobite or a dinosaur tooth with restoration, what this mean? Is paint? Is a fake piece glued in the original fossi?
  3. I've been looking at some Russian bugs, but all of them have anywhere from 2-8% restoration. I'm still new to collecting, so I'm not sure how much restoration is too much.
  4. I’m planning on trading for this tooth but before I do I wanted to make sure if there’s any restoration or repair on the tooth. The tooth is labeled as Zhuchengtyrannus cf. and is from the 75-71 million year old Djadochta Formation of Southern Mongolia. Though I think it’s safer to call it Tyrannosaurid indet. at the moment as the species or any Tyrannosaur species hasn’t been formally described from the formation.

    Big Ammonite Repair Adhesive

    Hello everyone! I managed to bring home this crazy guy, the problem is that it was so big it broke in pieces when extracting it. I've been using "Loctite Super Glue 3" (ethyl cyanoacrylate) for repairing my fossils until now and it worked pretty well. However, this one might be too heavy I'm afraid it wont be enough to keep the pieces together and it can be dangerous (since the whole fossil probably weights over 70 lbs). There are also some cracks I would like to fill, I heard a technique where you ground some matrix rock to dust and then use that powder to make a glue that has the e

    Rhino Repair

    I received this “little” project today. This restored wooly rhino skull was dropped while trying to be moved.
  7. I got a megalodon tooth which is clearly restored, but may we get to know which part is restored? I suspect entire root is restored? New in fossil still learning here. I posted some extreme closed up of root, enamel, and serration. Thanks for the analysation in advance.
  8. I obtained a nice Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth from the Lance Creek Formation of Wyoming. It was a good opportunity to try my hand at restoration. The tooth was around 80% complete, with some of the root missing and a dent near the tip. I only wanted to restore the latter part. Pretty good job, I think.
  9. Hi Members, I'll start off by saying that I'm a complete newbie in the fossil/dinosaur world, so please forgive me for using incorrect terminology. I have just come to acquire a complete Psittacosaurus mounted skeleton (see photos), that is mostly intact on the mount. The previous owner had a box of manus parts (phalanges, etc.). She also had an old tube of adhesive in that box (B-7000 in the "parts" photo). I would like to "restore" the structure via glueing the loose parts back onto the skeletal structure. I am looking for advice on which adhesive to use, e.g. should I use the B-7000

    Restoring teeth

    Hey! does anyone have any advice for a beginner on how to get decent serrations while restoring megs?
  11. I'm thinking of buying these Spinosaurid teeth. I can't quite tell if there's restorations on the teeth. Can someone here advise me whether they may have been restored or not? They have been glued im quite certain,

    Ungluing help

    Hey, I was wondering if there was something I could use to unglue a tooth I’ve got. It broke during shipping and I glued it, but there’s a piece that I have that doesn’t fit where it should go. I don’t want to use acetone cause I know that can be harmful to fossils sometimes, and paleo debonder didn’t work great previous times I’ve tried using it. TIA
  13. Hi im and amateur collector and I'm not sure if the was the right section to post this under. I purchased this tusk a couple years ago. The seller said he's had it since the 1970s. Because of the large crack from top to bottom and the inside is quite powdery. Is there and thing I can do to preserve it? Its about 6.5 feet along the curve and 120lb so I get worried when I move it. Also I see that great patina on some tusks is that something that is added 5o make it shine or does it comes out of the ground like that? Any help would be appreciated!

    Fossil Tooth Tip Restoration?

    Hello, I have a large canine tooth (~14 cm with the root, ~6.5 cm with just the tooth) from the White River Formation that I collected this summer on privately held land in northeastern Colorado, and though the fossil in its natural state is fantastic as-is I’m thinking about doing a little bit of restoration on the fossil and am looking for some insights. The tooth itself is from either an entelodont or the rhino Metamynodon, with the shape of the tooth and root strongly suggesting the latter to me (feel free to speak out if you have an opinion one way or the other, though I’m not
  15. Hello Fossil Forum, what do you think about this Keichousaurus? Seller says it's all original, no restoration. While it looks not quite as stunning as the critter in the thread below it's still much nicer than usual IMO and I like the dark/bright contrast of the slab. Any issues or red flags? Thanks! Vertebrate
  16. I have spent many hours this week scouring all the great meg photos and data on the site, however I have a very large plaster cast of a meg tooth that the Dean wants prepped, restored and made ready for a board meeting in two weeks. Good news is I can make that happen. this is a poor detail cast and has had sloppy grinder work done it in addition to at least three layers of badly applied spray enamel. Good news is I have it in a xylene/toluene/dichloromethane bath to strip the paint and preserve the plaster. bad news is I’m having trouble properly scaling the serrations
  17. SO....many decades ago, the university i work for had a geology and earth science program. Sadly it is long extinct. The good news is we are busy resurrecting it. Long story short, we have CRATES full of geo and paleo specimens....and it is my job to sort and prepare them. Most were donated/acquired in the late 1980's. Many many more were procured from the science departments of various schools and colleges as they closed down. Better than 90% of the items are not labeled, identified, or inventoried, so guess what I get to do... I'm fairly skilled in the arts and fossil prep,
  18. Edit: Wrong use of photos. Will update shortly! Hello! I've been eyeing this tooth for some time now - but before buying I could need a bit of help! The price is very reasonable for a tooth at 11,3 cm and overall the condition is good - which makes me a bit suspicious The market for fossils in the country I live in is very niche, which might explain the price, but I would like to hear the opinion from folks that have more knowledge than I do. Cheers! Anne

    Restoration

    I don't know if I am the only one that i hate restoration on the fossils. I love natural and original specimens. I prefer a tooth 80-90% complete from a tooth with restoration. Also, i prefer a B grade tooth with no repair, from a A grade repaired tooth. You?

    Fossil restoration

    Hey, I’ve been trying to restore some teeth of mine(and have done two) I was wondering 1. What would be best for reconstruction and 2. What paint you guys would recommend? This is one I’ve done so far, I’m proud of it but I want to learn how to do it better. TIA

    Great White Tooth Restoration

    I had a banged up Great White tooth; the root was almost completely missing, and the top of the crown was, too. I decided to restore it, mostly for fun. A bit of epoxy putty and paint later, the root is completely reconstructed and I reckon it looks pretty decent.
  22. Large piece of Triceratops frill that I restored. Came out of the field in 65 pieces. Glued, pinned, puttied and color matched. But I have a question for the forum. In one of the photos, near the top edge, there is a round hole that I have no idea what caused it, infection maybe? Let me know what your thoughts are about the hole and the restoration. The hole does not go all the way through by the way. as you can see in the photos the pieces where coated with a thin layer of crust and had to be scraped and brushed. There were some missing pieces when all was glued and some very large gaps.
  23. Hello, Firstly, I would like to thank everyone for their continued support in answering questions for someone who has now ventured into fossil hunting and procurement. I purchased the attached ammonite pair some time ago and I would like to get advice on quality and possible additional restoration I can do on my own. I’m not sure if I can get the dull face better polished. I’m also not sure what to do with the external sides. Is this also a very good quality specimen and therefore, I should put further interest in getting the pair in better Condition?
  24. Hi, I am looking for a megalodon expert to help me see restorations on a tooth. I was told the tooth had minor restorations on the root and rear of the tooth. Can you tell be these pictures if that is correct and if there are other restorations done? Thank you for your time
  25. Hi there I recently purchased a Albertasaurus tooth. A portion is in a matrix and there are some broken off pieces. This would be my first attempt a putting a fossil back together. If you could provide any input on 1. if it would devalue it by doing it, 2. how I should do it, 3. and what tools or glue or putty I should use. If you could dumb down the language for me that would be appreciated, like I said this is my first time!
