Oil painting restoration involves devarnishing the oil and filling in any loss areas, then painting with B72 acryloid, dry ground pigments, and a carrier. When the paints flakes off or bubbles, the treatment is to vacuum line it with a vacuum heat press, using a micro crystalline wax that’s heated and bonded to both the original canvas and the fiberglass lining.

Then, all wax from the surface is removed and the painting is stretched. Once the painting is completed and dried, a sealer is applied, with your choice between a Damar Varnish gloss or a Matte Varnish brush application.

Photographs are taken before, during, and after the restoration process to see the transformation in full.
