Closing the gap

Question: This Maher figure has winkers and raising eyebrows but the large gap in the neck area when his mouth is in the open position bothers me. Is this something that you could fix to make less noticable? If so, what would you charge? Cal

Answer: I've closed the gap on several of the Lovik basswood figures, yes. It requires removing the mouth, and reshaping both the underside of the mouth as well as the neck. Then the entire head is repainted. It does enhance the appearance of the figure significantly. Generally, the cost is about $100 total. Clinton
