Filling & Inpainting

Visual reintegration of losses can be achieved through filling and inpainting.  Filling uses an inert material to restore an area of loss to the same plane as the rest of the painting.  The area can then be inpainted (carefully retouched within the area of loss– never over original paint) using removable conservation paints.
