To mend the dents on the bench, I’ve used the stucco. Once the stucco has dried off, gently scrub off the excesses. For more precise work, scratching with bisturi also works.
Once all the surface has been cleaned and smoothened by sandpaper, there are some parts where it needs to be retinted.
Take time to understand which tone has been previously and how the color changes once it dry.
The chipped side part of the bench, it’s restored by replacing a new wood piece. First clean the restoring surface with a handsaw to smoothen the rough edges. Then attach the wood piece to place with synthetic glue and tiny nails. Two nails helped to fix the piece in place. The replaced pieces are always bigger than the exact measurement. It’s always better to shape and chisel down the piece than to constantly redo to create the perfect fit.
Renaissance test day
Through this class, I was able to fall in love with the city even more. As my knowledge of architecture, paintings, and sculptures of renaissance expands, I am extra delighted with surprises as I walk across the city.
I’ve understood more about the Medici family’s power and history in Firenze since my arrival. It has been a very fascinating and meaningful class for me and to understand the deeper roots of today’s remainings.
