Recently Jody Daily and I lent a hand to the restoration of a Victorian farmhouse in Anaheim, California, built in the late 1800s. As the two-story structure had been lifted off its foundation and relocated to a new street, some original plaster corbels were destroyed in the move. Only one, broken into four pieces, was remotely salvageable.
After gluing the pieces back together, we removed a century of paint, filled the cracks and resculpted some details that had chipped off. New replacements have been cast for the ones that had been destroyed, and I can't wait to see them all back where they belong. Stay tuned!
