Here at Articole Studios we have been restoring different objects for many years.
We can restore almost anything, we like to work on anything that has a certain challenge!
Here are some examples of work we have completed over the last few years:
40’ long fiberglass frieze
Made in the 1960s and positioned on the side of a swimming pool in Erith.
We took 12 sections off the wall, brought them back to our studio, sandblasted the front, repaired the back, restored the front and repainted it.
Restoration and replacement of 1850’s terracotta stonework
All work is being done for a large country house in England. Existing stone work was made and fixed in around 1850 and is now falling apart. We are taking mould off old terracotta sections and replacing them with a modern acrylic based material.
This wasn’t working when it came in. We dismantled everything, stripped the wood frame and repaired it. Then we sprayed it in red metalflake with a deep gloss laquer. We serviced the mechanism and re installed it. It works and sounds worndeful.
1957 Messerchmitt 3 wheeled microcar
This was a basket case of bits when it came in. The main body tub has had most panels replaced. It hasn’t been on the road for over 30 years!
Obscure missing parts have been located from as far a way as Sweden. The Messerschmitt has been repainted and is currently being re assembled with all new trim etc.
1971 VW Camper
Pair of 19th century Giant Griffins
Originals in terracotta had been stored for 50 years, Repairs were made, moulds taken then reproduced in fiberglass and antiqued. The originals were then restored and replaced back on giant gateposts.
