Piggy Banks

New project for me, have always seen these clay piggy banks in a store window in Barcelona, so I thought they will look great with one of my finishes. The smile was an after thought!.....The finished I used in this project is gold leaf with patina.

Plaster Relief Panel

This is a relief panel that I bought from a friend, such a cool piece!. Probably an antique removed from an old house, so I'm going to put my artistic touches on this amazing piece.

Here is the almost finished result, still I will add more patina and a gold frame.

I found Jesus

Robert found Jesus one Tuesday night in the street. The sculpture belong to a restorer that retired and left the broken Jesus in the street. Jesus also contained a little plastic bag with all the broken pieces of the face, hand and the eye balls. Robert can not believe what he found.

Starting to restore the broken pieces of the face.

Getting the eyes on the face.

Gluing the eyes.

During restoration Robert decide he wanted to make a statement with his newly found Jesus.

Gold leaf layer.

Robert decided to restore the sculpture to a period look.
