A before and after shot of a chalk ware Bossons head that shows what can be done to rescue them from the rubbish bin. A two dollar box of plaster, a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, and a bonus color pack of Mr. Sharpies, transformed this unloved man into a usable piece again in less than an hour while watching television. Simply dust it off, mix an amount of plaster appropriate to fix the dings, about half an hour after patching, smooth and blend the patches to match the texture of it's surroundings, then in the last ten minutes, fill in the white plaster starting with lighter tones first, as you can build layers of color overtop of each other to match. Don't worry if it's not perfect as this adds character to the piece and by all means feel free to change the the colors to suit your taste.
When you are finished you will have a very displayable piece that will forever be one of a kind. Thanks for visiting!
