Detail of an antique painting in the process of
Remove the effects of smoke damage,
water damage, mold and darkened varnish.
Oil paint oxidizes when it dries, and becomes dull over time.
This is especially evident in paintings which have never been varnished. Cleaning and nourishing the paint surface, followed by varnishing, can restore the colors to reflect the artist's original vision.
Fix holes and scratches in paintings
Canvas repair and reweaving;
gouges in panels repaired and repainted.
Replace lost and damaged paint
Professional color matching, inpainting and retouching.
Non-yellowing protective varnish with UV light filtering qualities provides maximum surface protection.
Stabilize paintings: Reline paintings
Fragile canvasses can be mounted on a variety of new surfaces including linen, canvas and hardboards. Relining stabilizes the painting and relaxes the paint film. It also retards the progression of stress cracks and other damage caused by uneven tension, flexing and mishandling.
