New Mammoth Jaw

Posted: September 18, 2016 by joetaylorarcheo in Uncategorized

Mon. Sept.19, 2016, work will begin on a heavily mineralized mammoth lower jaw from a gravel pit 3,000 ft. east of the Red River near Wichita, Texas. It is broken into dozens of pieces. I will first photo it as delivered to me, then all the pieces. After cleaning, it will be coated in polyvinyl acetate (PVA)  and when dried I will begin to glue smaller pieces to larger ones, recording every step. This jaw half is coated with a brown iron stone-like veneer. The owner agrees with me that it should stay on it. More later.
