Statuary Restoration

March 24, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Before. This beautiful and beloved concrete flamingo was cracked, faded. The owner wanted it restored to an EYE popping pink. I patched concrete, filled in cracks and spent some time on those beautiful eyes.

After. This piece no longer blends into the surroundings. It pops out among the foliage. Some of the shading and highlights are lost in the photo but a happy ending for all.

Kiki will demonstrate how to revive worn, cracked and tired statuary and pottery for a fresh look. Working on resin and clay she will demonstrate the basic steps to giving your garden décor a face lift. Cast aluminum, concrete, resin and a variety of clay and metal materials can all be salvaged with time and patience. The demo will cover surface prep and clean up, painting options and finishing coat. A workshop will be offered in April for those who are interested in hands on learning. Visitors are welcome to bring pictures for advice on fixing their problem or for a quote to have it refurbished. Please do not bring the actual piece to the demo.
