Pinxy Restoration – Sanding

 

sanding001

The first thing you must do when restoring an old figure, like this pinxy, is to remove all the layers of paint coating the face. Such was it with this Pinxy.

After many hours of tedious hand sanding I have got down to the wood in most of the face areas. That is the hard part.

Now for the rest of the head. The easy sanding.

Check back soon and see the great transformation.
