I have 15 years of experience in restoring statues. Restoring a statue requirers a great deal of detail & airbrush work. I remove as much of the old paint as possible & then re-seal the surface, then airbrush the base paint on. Which is worked towards a graduated color affect, then detail hair, finger nails, toe nails, lips, eyes, eyebrows, and garment. As you can tell in my examples I became very invoolved in making the statue as life like as possible.
