Production Process of Terra-Cotta Warrior Replica


A combination of molding and sculpturing were employed to fashion the terra-cotta figurines in the Qin Mausoleum.Traditional sculpturing methods used included layering, pinching, pasting, carving and painting. Long strips of clay were layered to form the rough outline of the body, with the pasting, pinching and carving methods employed to add robes and armor. Fashioning heads represented a comparatively complicated process. Facial features were achieved using a mold, with piling and sculpting used to form the back of the head. Ears were pasted to the heads prior to adding sculpted or molded hair buns. Refinements such as eyes, eyebrows, mouths, mustaches and ears were carefully carved to reveal the desired personality for the figurine.

Is it a symbol of good luck or protection if I put it in my home?
I bought an iron clad general when in China. Is it bad luck? Where in the house should I place it?

Lisa, it's just a decoration thing for your home. I don't think it will bring you good or bad luck. If you want to increase your good luck, you may buy something according to Chinese Feng Shui.

The yellow mud coating washed off. The black is uneven. Protect from rain.
I kept my warrior bought in China outside. It changed dramatically. The head still has the tan clay color, but the body turned black. But the black is uneven and white shows. What can I use to repair the color and then what can I coat it with so that it can go back outdoors?

Genii, you might consider buying a new one instead of repairing it. The replicas were made from earth. As time goes by, their colors are fading gradually. It's difficult to make up because you may not find same colors. And I don' t think it's good put it outside of your house. Next time you have a new one, please keep it in your house and then you can keep its original appearance for long.

Do you have an official repairer based in the UK to repair the models of terra cotta army?
I purchased 2 warriors back in 1999. Due to the transportation over the years of said purchase one has become damaged and I would like it repaired. Do you know of someone based in the UK who could fix it for me. It has a whole in the chest and a diagonal crack from shoulder to foot. Please help many thanks

I have no idea about the repair base in the UK, but the tarracotta army can be easily repaired by a strong glue.

Anyway, as I know, they cannot be preserved for a long time, because they are made by earth and clay. If u really love that, you may consider buying another one from China!
Just for your reference!
