Antiqueing a Grecian statue

willsgramApril 29, 2007

I have just rescued this "lady" from a neighbor's yard sale. She's Grecian in style, I believe, and is holding a pitcher that pours water, when plugged in to an outlet. She's currently a goldish antique color and I definitely want to change that to either a gray or maybe a whitewash, with dark gray antiquing. She stands about 3ft. high and is pouring water into an oaken bucket. Any ideas would be welcome, since I've never done this before.

You didn't mention, what is it made out of, concrete? I've never done this but I would suggest checking out antiquing mediums at a craft store like Michael's or even going to a hardware store and asking for their opinion as to what to use.

The statue is very heavy and may be concrete. We have a Michael's near us, so I'll ask there for some ideas. Thank you.
