This is an original plaster John Rogers sculpture approximately 130 years old. It was in bad shape. Very unstable, falling apart. The horses leg was broken, the hat was broken partly off the boy, there were cracks through out and the plaster was crumbling. I was able to stablilize it with jb weld, bondo and super glue and then apply a bronze metal finish. Turned out beautifully.
Stay tune for my next project. A John Rogers sculpture in even worse shape than the first! Here is a before pic. Stay tuned for the final product soon!
