Hi everyone, I posted yesterday about restoring my Megalodon tooth. I'd like to first and foremost thank the community for their help in answering those questions, and special shoutouts along that vein to @Reptilia and @mattbsharks. This is a 3" tooth from South Carolina that was around 85% complete. It was missing parts of the sides, and the tip. I completed the restoration today. Overall I'm happy with it. To me, it looks like it's been restored. That could simply be because I'm the one who worked on it. Nevertheless it was fun, not to mention great experience for next time! Supplies used: * Acrylic paint (Black, Brown, White, Tan, and Golden Brown) * Gloss finish * Epoxy putty (PaleoPutty is hard to find in Canada; I used JBWeld High Heat, which allows 1 hour before setting) * Sandpaper (220 grit) * Respirator (sanding safety!) * Paintbrushes (soft, made of the finest imported mammoth fur just kidding extremely generic) * Knife (detailing) Here's the tooth before I reconstructed it:
