Meiji Ningyo Restoration, part VI

Sometimes I get so distracted with my other work that I forget to come in here and keep you updated. As I am so fond of saying, I could really use an assistant… and a chef, a maid, a chauffeur, etc. At least I have the dog to get me up and out of bed in the morning! That must count for something.

Here are some before and after pictures of the ningyo, courtesy of Ann Weaver in San Diego. Click on either image to see a larger version.

Here he is “before”, with his many cracks and badly-patched face.

And… after! Much improved.

As Ann and I have both been busy this summer, we haven’t been rushing this project to completion. I look forward to having him back in my studio, but for the time being, I know he’s being well taken care of.

Okay, I admit it. I miss the little guy!

    He is so handsome. I’d want him home from repair-camp too. What are you doing with his clothing?

    Thanks for sharing this charming adventure.

    1. Ann and I are still waiting on his clothing. The textile cleaning specialist had a heart attack (!!!) in August, and I’m not sure what’s happening at this point. I’ve asked Ann to give me an update, so I’ll post when I hear back.
