Painting Restoration Services
Our treatments use all stable, archival materials. With the exception of cleaning, our treatment methods are fully reversible. This ensures that newer and better methods and materials can be implemented should they become available in the future.
Photographic documentation and a written treatment report are provided upon completion of every project.
CLEANING The removal of dirt, grime, and discolored varnish layers
STABILIZATION Setting down cracks and reattaching loose or lifting paint
BEVA LINING Repair of structural issues (rips, holes, and other damage) by lining onto linen using archival BEVA 371 solution as an adhesive and consolidant
TRANSPARENT LINING Lining onto transparent Mylar (when a traditional lining would obscure original writing on the reverse of a painting)
STRIP-LINING Reinforcing or extending the tacking margins.
