I have been asked to repair quite a few sculptures at our school. Seems like
Mary's nose always gets chipped over summer vacation in the closet or
something. Anyway...I usually start with an emery board, and file it smooth
again (aka Michael Jackson) so that the chunk is not so obvious. THen I have
used acrylic stencil paints (the country colors are easy to mix to get flesh
tones, etc.) and paint it right on. I usually don't seal it with anything.
My nose jobs and repairs have been holding up so far. Hope this helps.
