    The glued copper sheet resisted the heat, the polymer clay wasn't over baked and still white :-)

    I matched colors to the decor with my usual mix of watercolor pencils and permanent markers, then finished with a diamond glaze coat. (Tricky part, diamond glaze is water based...)

    3 hours work achieved with a huge relief sigh!

    My friend and I agreed to leave the other damages (upper part) untouched.

    Just gave it back to her, she was amazed and truly delighted with the result :-D

      Ha, Judy and Jenni, you were so quick to pop up there!
      I was really thrilled to have it in hands, and anxious not to mess with it...
      My friend's joy upon unwrap was a delight!

      As good as professional. It is an exquisite Madonna and child, and you friend has been blessed to have you restore it so beautifully.
      I am in awe Pascale.

      This talent you have is truly a gift... and when you
      share it with others as you have here makes it all
      the more special. You returned a 17th century work of art
      back to it's original state...WOW, truely a gift!

      Looks like "museum restoration" quality to me. One of your best transformations yet Kyra ! :)
    13. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Whoooohhh! Scott, Mrstyndall, Ken, Trey, Lentilka, Mani, Share, Karen, Ms.Crystalship, Mike! You are so kind in your commenting, I’m spoiled now...
      Any professional restorator would be horrified by my methods... but I take all your compliments with proudness, thank you so much for your support and loves :-D

      Many thanks for loving my kyratisation, Loumanal, Fortapache, Hel1, Paul, Trey, Aura, Dlpetersen, JImam!

      Kyra this is really fantastic! What a beautiful restoration! When I look at my damaged jewelry I always have a WWKD moment. And then I put it aside unless it's something I can do easily with markers and hobby enamel paint:-) Your attention and skill is excellent!
    15. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Oh Mary, what a kind compliment, thank you my friend!
      I have too some put aside things... Until I get a trick or the needed complementary part... Now I’m rather hunting for wounded pieces and spares than for perfect ones, lol!
