Gluing the pieces of pottery using Butvar B76 with concentration 3% and 10%. The Tg is 62-76˚C so this material fits the Iraqi environment.
For filling the lost places we have to use three different materials such as plaster, glass micro balloons and epoxy putty. But before we apply the fill we coat the surface of the joints and around the joints with Acryloid B72. Also we have to put backing materials behind the fill such as wax or Plastiline.
Painting the fills with acrylic and water colors and trying to choose a color which is close to the original one.
