    Drag0nfeathers Just curious, is it harder to texture and paint a “regular” dragon, or a Guardian? I’ve always avoided picking up any guardians to repair thinking they’d be way more obvious if you didn’t get it JUST right, but it occurs to me I could be totally wrong for all I know.

    Sarah, I’m no repairman and don’t dare try a regular Windstone, but if you mean a stone textured piece I find them pretty easily doable, depending on the extent of the repair. To me the naturally rougher texture and greater randomness, if you will, of it and the paint make them possible. It’s much harder to try and match the sharpness and perfection of a regular Windstone.

    Actually the textures are a cinch, the easiest and most forgiving repairs there are in my opinion. I just press a dishtowel into the wet apoxie sculpt and taa daa… stone texture!

    Actually hoping you will post pictures here of the Emperor dragon you just finished doing for me. Its hard to find a honest repair person these days. You should pride yourself on being so honest. I currently have 2 pieces floating around with another repair person that never fixed them or returned either of them. It’s been 2 years now and they are paid for already just never returned to me or repaired that I know of. Be very careful who you trust with your pieces that you love. Please do not ask me for a name I won’t post it.

    Well, even without disclosure I am pretty sure I know who you are referring to and that’s really sad to hear. Not doing the repair is one thing, but to also keep the sculpture on top of that is terrible.

    That’s why I usually do payment AFTER the repair is completed… not that it should make a difference.

    I have taken small hiatuses but I’ve always made sure my customer got their piece back. I think the worst was Chloe, poor thing. She waited over a year for her Rock Dragon to come back to her, but that thing was a big project. I didn’t realize how much more difficult the cement sculptures were to work with vs. the gypsum and it required almost a complete repaint. Now I know for the future.

    drgnlvr’s repairs took a while too, also about a year if I recall however that was when her curio cabinet collapsed and I think it was roughly 27-32 sculptures in total so that was just a big job.

    I’ll post some pics in my other repair thread. I just finished an Emerald Mother dragon as well and now I have a Castle to work on.
