Resin figurines are artistic pieces that can be treasured for a lifetime. These figurines are made of resin, a durable plastic material that is capable of standing wear and tear. However, accidents can happen, and a resin figurine can get damaged, especially if it falls from high up or gets dropped onto a hard surface. One of the common damages that can happen is the chipping or missing of a piece from a resin figure. When this happens, it is essential to repair the damage to restore the figure's original beauty .

In this article, we will show you how to repair a missing piece of a resin figure. Read on for more information.

Subheading 1 - Assess the Damage

The first step in repairing a missing piece of a resin figure is to assess the damage. Look at the figure closely to determine the extent of the damage. If the missing piece is small, less than 1/4 inch in diameter, then the repair can be done easily. If the missing piece is bigger, say, a whole arm or a leg, then the repair will be more complicated and time-consuming.

Subheading 2 - Gather the Materials

Once you have assessed the damage, the next step is to gather the materials for the repair. You will need a set of tweezers, a small paintbrush, a putty knife, resin repair putty, fine grit sandpaper, and paint that matches the color and finish the resin figurine.

Subheading 3 - Prepare the Surface

Before you start the repair, you need to prepare the surface where the missing piece will be attached. Use the tweezers to remove any loose debris or fragments on the surface. Next, use the fine grit sandpaper to roughen the surface slightly. Better adhesion for the repair putty.

Subheading 4 - Apply the Repair Putty

Next, apply the repair putty to the missing piece area. Use the putty knife to spread the putty evenly over the surface. Make sure that the putty is applied to the missing piece's edges, so it will hold together firmly.

Subheading 5 - Paint the Repair

Once the putty has hardened, use sandpaper to smooth out any rough spots. Then, paint the repair with paint that matches the figure's color and finish. Use a small paintbrush to apply the paint to the area. You may need to use more than one coat of paint to achieve the right color and finish.


Repairing a missing piece of a resin figurine may seem challenging, but with the right tools and materials, it can be done easily. Remember to assess the damage, gather the materials, prepare the surface, apply the repair putty, and paint the repair. By following these steps, you can restore your resin figurine's original beauty and value.
