Repair and Refurbishment Method of Animatronic Dinosaur Model Skin Damage

Aug. 20, 2020

The animatronic dinosaur model is a kind of simulated dinosaur. The skin is made of sponge and silicone. It can be used outdoors for a long time. It has the advantages of waterproof and sunscreen, but it is very easy to be damaged by sharp objects. If it is damaged, it will be repaired in time. There are potential safety hazards such as internal water ingress and burning of the motor, and at the same time, it is relatively old after a long time. How should I repair it?

To repair the epidermis, you can use needle and thread to sew up the damaged position, and then use glass glue to evenly apply to the stitched position for waterproofing, and you need to choose acid glass glue so that the repair effect is better. After using glass glue to repair the damaged position, there will be more obvious traces, and the complementary color masking treatment is required.

If you want to make up the color, you can use paint to apply on it, and then gently wipe with a paintbrush, try to blend with the surrounding colors, so that the repair effect is best.

If the large rubber dinosaur model needs to be refurbished, it can also be repainted with paint. Air compressor, spray gun, thinner, paint and other materials need to be prepared.

Before proceeding with the renovation work, the dust on the skin of the dinosaur model must be cleaned up. If possible, it can be cleaned with weakly acidic clean water, so that it has good adhesion after coloring and does not fade easily. Coloring can take the method of background color + color, from light to dark spray color.
