Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (minus Sneezy)

As I blogged in an earlier post, I have been in the process of restoring these vintage Disney concrete garden statues. We have all the pieces except Sneezy who was too busted up to restore. Fortunately, we found a replacement that is shipping from the east coast.

One thing I noticed when trying to stay faithful to the color scheme of each character is that there seems to be a lot of conflicting info online. I did my best to match any images I found online from the original movie. Also, I wasn’t digging just a white beard. I tried to add more detail by adding gray and white to capture a more realistic look. Here are before and after photos of some of the characters.

These pieces have started to be reproduced. They come in three different sizes: small, medium & large. Our set is original and would be considered the large set. We will be happy to complete the set once Sneezy arrives. Onto the next project!

Excuse the landscaping, we still need to work on the backyard.

  2. Do you know what company is making the reproductions? I’ve been dying to do a take on Disneyland’s Snow White grotto.

  3. We have a vintage set too…that I need to paint. Ours is also missing Sneezy (and Doc is going to need a lot of repairs) Could you please advise us on how to locate a Sneezy for our set? Thank you, Robin

  4. I just bought the entire set ( with Sneezy), at a yard sale this winter.
    They are the large ones, as well, and not too far gone, but still a lot of work needed.
    You did a fantastic job! I’m a concrete statue painter, by trade, and I know all the hours it must’ve taken!
