Crafty bees: my husband broke an unpainted plaster rabbit sculpture that I loved, it has several major cracks running through it but is being held together by an internal piece of mesh. I want to try and fix it, but I've never used plaster before.
Can just glue the cracks with Elmers and put fresh plaster on top of it? Would the new plaster adhere to the original sculpture? Or is it like with pottery that's been through a kiln where the new stuff wouldn't join with the old stuff? Its texture is already intentionally super rough and I'm an artist, so I *think* I could get it looking okay if I knew how to use the material. I read that Elmers was better than superglue because it seeps into plaster's cracks and bonds it better, but ??
TIA for any tips Here she is.
