  1. Hi everyone! I just got a 20" mosasaur (Prognathodon?) jaw piece in the mail, and unfortunately it was split into 3 pieces. Fortunately, the breaks are fairly clean, with a few small fragments broken off, and the pieces fit right back together. If anyone has experience with this sort of thing, what kind of glue do you think will work the best, and what application method would you use?
  2. Hello There's an unrestored phareodus fish fossil I'm thinking about purchasing. How difficult is it to restore these and what do they use to highlight them? I'm a very patient guy and already have the tools needed. Just not sure to to go about the highlight process. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. I saw this tooth for sale and it looks like it has restoration on the yellow batches, however seller strongly believes there are no repairs nor restorations, want opinions on whether you think it has restoration.
  4. Hello, I was wondering if these chinese Keichosaurus looked real? How much reconstruction/restoration if any, and how is their condition? Both slabs are about 9 inches long. First looks ok to me, second's body looks a bit weird. Thank you! 1. 2.

    Any repair or restoration?

    Hello! I was just wondering if this mosasaur tooth looks like it had any repair or restoration done to it. The tip is darker and in some angles it maybe looks repaired. But then it also maybe just looks like different degrees of enamel wear. Thanks for your help! Kevin
  6. Hi! I'm looking for advice. I found this fossil yesterday and like so many others I find it's on an unstable piece and has a major crack through it. I'd hate to coat it with anything as I prefer to keep things natural. Yet I'm also worried that it might just fall apart on its own or from handling. What's my best course of action? Any advice/help is appreciated.
  7. I just wanted to share this, thought it might be of interest and there's definitely room for improvement and tips! This was the first fossil mammoth tusk I restored and prepared a few years ago- a juvenile mammoth tusk that was split laterally almost perfectly down the middle. It was sourced from central Alaska, though not sure if it was discovered in a mining operation or if it was exposed on a river bank as so many are. The first step was to submerge and soak the entire tusk in a PVA solution, followed by Apoxie sculpt and banding to merge the two broken pieces and restore some
  8. I wanted to try my hand at fossil restoration and wanted not know what sort of material is used ? I believe some kind of epoxy putty is used ? Is there any particular kind that's used for smaller pieces that can be carved into shape ?
  9. Is this a painted tooth?
  10. Hello, Here is what I think is a nice lot of Hemipristis serra teeth from Florida, which are about 2~2.5cm size. However I have no experience with shark teeth or teeth in general so I was wondering if these seem real, if there seems to be any restoration/reconstruction? I think most of these have nice serrations, but how is the quality of enamel and root preservation? Thanks.

    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.
  12. PetrosTrilobite

    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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  21. 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
  23. 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
