Luisa- Absolutely it is ethical to make new fingers, especially if you have some of the old fingers as references. All the points that Barbara made are correct. I just wanted to give you a link, http://www.getty.edu/art/gettyguide/artObjectDetails?artobj=1304 to a Spanish polychrome sculpture at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles which has several restored fingers on the proper right hand.
