« Part 2: Eagle statue Part 3 of Restoring series Part 4: Frame »

I’m continuing with restoring wih restoing of rococo frame. We are with schoolmate unbonding and removing glued parts because joints are broken. Frame is consisted of 3 layers. I will be difficult work. Also top part is missing so I have to find some similar design. Here are some photos.

What delicate work! That frame will be beautiful when you’re done with it. Is it all wood or are some parts a plaster-like material? Will it be gilded in gold? What patience you must have!

Thank you. It’s all made of linden. You can see some pieces made of clue, but it’s only a model for carving. Polychromy is gray and gold. :)
