Training was always an important part of Professor Robert Bakers’  workshop practice. He taught us new modelling and casting techniques and spent time with us  looking in detail at masterpieces like this Simoni Martini annunciation. Above is the fired clay made in 1984 that is prepared with gesso and gilded and now  awaiting a free moment to be painted using the tempera.The pictures right show part of the Roman memorial to Julius Vitalis armourer. This half sized copy (1997) is in two parts and I have painted the right side  using what I believe to be authentic colours and medium. The left hand stone incorporates a Roman style repair . Newly carved and painted  it was used as a demonstration piece at the Roman Baths Museum and then left to weather along with the fresco left. The standard bearer  left is also from the museum and awaiting an opportunity to be painted in the Roman style.
