A friend of mine asked me to do a little project for her, she had these cheesy little cement chicks as lawn ornaments when she was a kid. They're all cracked and beat up now, she asked if I could restore them.
I was trying to figure out what would be the best way to fix them up in terms of their actual structure. Their beaks are broken off, and one of them has a big dent & crack in his head. Is it as simple as filling the spaces with quickcrete? Would I have to worry about it cracking as it dries? Will I be able to re-form a beak out of that? Or would I be better off making the beak out of Sculpey, and gluing it on? The surface just has to end up being paintable.
I'll post before & after pics when they're done.
