Two Wise Men
Before I get back to the models one last Christmas post. This year, as every year, beloved has had the crib figures re-enacting the Christmas story over the past few weeks. Sadly, during this period, two of the Magi have suffered accidental damage.
one is not too bad with just some small chips to the paint.
out come the acrylics, and with a little careful blending the damage is easily disguised.
The other has suffered more significantly
this is the state of damage even after an initial repair
a few more layers of filler have rebuilt the plaster
and after a lot of matching and blending the damage is no longer evident to casual eyes
and the Wise men are good to go back into storage for another year
