On the left is one of the popular thaliand buddha name Chinala. its fully mould of copper and standing at 16 inches. this statue was originally coated with gold paint and the owner wants to have a gold leaf job. my first step is to sand off the existing gold paint and make sure that the suface of the statue is clean and smooth. then, i need to coat it with a special anti rust paint mainly for copper usage to prevent it from rusting in future, 3rd step is to coat it with oil base sealer for a smoother finishing and for another layer for rust prevention.
