Step 2: Cleaning the Frame

For the cleaning I used a cotton swab dipped in water. This was so I could clean each tiny crevice. I simply rubbed every inch of the detailed part of the frame to clean it. The bottom was the worst and you could tell there was cigarette smoke mixed in with the dust. It did all come off. The only issue I had was some of the plaster broke off as I was cleaning it. I tried to keep all the pieces in the same place they fell off from. Some of them would line up easily so i was able to place them back later without much hassle.
<p>Hi---Love all the information you were kind enough to share. I have read your instructions very carefully and believe I have most of it, except the cup being the bottom of the mold...that is confusing me. I have studied your pics and still cannot wrap my brain around your method. I have several frames I want to repair and some that I would have purchased if I knew how to repair them. I think this would be a great winter time project. Your frame look awesome, great job!!! Thank you so much. Kemberly</p>
Thank you. I used it to keep the liquid in one place. If it drips this catches it. This way i don't have to rely on making a whole mold from scratch. Hope this helps. Have fun.
<p>Job well done!! Thanks for the very clear instructions.I would love to try this, but I doubt I am patient enough. </p>
<p>Thank you! I was getting ready to throw away 2 oval antique frames because of the flaking plaster, but now I'll try fixing them instead.</p>
<p>Your welcome. Good luck with the frames. I would love to see the before and after.</p>
Milliput....THANK YOU I thought I was going to have to become a sculptress <br>and I'm not sure I have the talent. Great job Cheers and Bravo
