That was an understatement.
Mary had a multitude of chips, dings, and a broken neck. I actually walked past her several times, but I felt she needed a little help. So, I took her home.
I cleaned Mary, added a little filler around her neck, and gave her many layers of white gesso. I then gave her patina with a wash of dirty water for a garden statue feel. I let the water seep into the crevices, wiped her off, and followed with another layer of gesso.
What do you think of her makeover?
