Sharon, My wife and I are in the process of remodeling an old house. We found an old claw foot tub and it needs be redone. If you hear of anything helpful, please forward it to me and I will do likewise to you. My wife's aunt just had hers professionaly done. I was hoping to do it myself, but will have to resort to a professional if I can't find any info on products and techniques for do-it-yourself type people. Let me know if you want any info on a professional to do this.
