We are restoring a statue of the Holy Family for our parish. The
artist is T. Marques, Barcelona, Espana; date on statue 1928. It
appears to be a molded plaster statue which used a combination of
oil-based paints and 23K liquid gold on the garments. Someone later
air-brushed the entire statue with acrylic paints. In removing the
acrylic paint to bring it back to the original, we are unfortunately
removing some of the gold too.
Is there a better way to remove this without further damage to
Where do we find 23K liquid gold to reapply to the damaged areas?
What is the best way to proceed in applying the liquid gold?
