natural-history-museum-santa-cruz-whale-350The large California Gray Whale located at the Natural History Museum on East Cliff Drive near Seabright Avenue in Santa Cruz CA was in disrepair when TRC was asked to help restore the whale's original colors.  The TRC team patched some areas that were chipped and frayed with an engineered cement.  Subsequent to the cement repairs was an acrylic coloration that was applied with rags, brushes and sponges to achieve the color mottling of an actual gray whale including barnacles and all.
