Re: Repair broken plaster sculpture

I am trying to repair a patinated plaster sculpture for a friend but I am not sure what to use.

A supporting arm is broken in two places. The broken sections shows signs of past attempts at repair but the owner does not remember what was used. This means that the broken sections are not porous anymore.

I have had excellent results with a ceramic glue to repair fired clay but in this case I am not sure if I could use that glue or if Elmer glue would work better? Also, should I scratch the broken section to ensure better bonding?

Thanks for your help.
