Claes T. Oldenburg's "Green legs with shoes" is one of the
"Store--Objects" from 1961 and is made of muslin soaked in plaster
over wire frame, painted with enamel (oil) colors.

The relief got damaged and there are some broken areas in the
plaster and typical "blooming" on the surface of the color. I want
to know, if there is someone, who has experience with other
"store--objects" from Oldenburg, specifically: the adhesive for
broken plaster (also from other plaster-objects) and the removal of
bloom from the surface. The colors Oldenburg had used were
designated as "enamel colors". Is this an American term and what are
the components of these colors? Does anyone knows a manufacturer?
