Repairing bronze

From: Lalit Kumar <renukalk>
Date: Tuesday, October 23, 2001
I have received a bronze image broken into two pieces. The halo is
an open work with many figures attached to it with the help of small
bars. In the present case the halo is broken in to two pieces and a
figure detached from it. The joining bars of the figure is also
missing. Use of epoxy is common in general. Can any one suggest any
other technique especially when new studs are to be added? Is there
any welding technique which does not change the colour of the
surrounding metal while joining the new parts?
