Several people have asked to see what the original color was when I bought the angels.
The two in the picture are the ones my hubby managed to resuce with the broken votive bottoms still in place. I found if you put a little water in the bottom of the little pan that held them, it loosened the glue enough to take the rest of the broken glass out. Anything could replace the votive if you didn't want to put another one there. The angel is a mustard gold color with raised line work. I didn't put any metal sealer on the wings nor the head area. Every thing that would be painted was sealed with metal sealer first. If possible let it dry over nite. If not then use a hot hair dryer to dry and set the paint. Will send pictures of the metal boxes later.
