Antiqueing a Grecian statue

Posted by willsgram (My Page) on

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.

RE: Antiqueing a Grecian statue

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.

RE: Antiqueing a Grecian statue

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.
