this is the budhha statue made of copper, as seen fromt he picture, some part of the statue turn rusty/corrosion thus parts of the gold leaf done previously came off, in order to ensure not to encounter this problem, i've got to stripped off all gold and paint from the statue to its origin and re-do everything.

bit by bit i scrapped away the exisiting paint from the statue then i de-rust it using sand paper and metal hair brush. after de-rust, i've used a very special type of solution which is called anti corrosion chemical, then after applying 4 times of the chemical, i painted another 2 coatings of oil base sealer to prevent the statue from corrosion again.
