Statue Update–With Pictures!

December 30, 2010 at 1:15 am 3 comments

Statue update! – with pictures! The statue has been taken to Titcomb Brothers Manufacturing in Westport where Ted Titcomb (the original creator of the statue) will repair him. The process has begun. Victor, at Titcomb Brothers, has finished sandblasting all of the paint off of the statue.

I expected to take an action packed video of this event, thinking that it would be great fun to show the paint flying off the statue. Sort of like a big gust of wind blowing all the snow off your car. Well….I didn’t know much about sandblasting. It works more like a fine point eraser than a car wash or a gust of wind. This was a slower and more careful process than I thought and isn’t very interesting to show you in a video. Just plain pictures are much better in this case.

He actually looks beautiful in his natural state. He is all grey with little sparkly silver flecks. It’s like he’s had a facial!  The next step is making the actual repairs to the gash in his leg. More pictures when we have them!
