Art Restoration: Most paintings brought to us for repair or restoration have a history that is very personal and sentimental. We take great care throughout the restoration process, knowing how much your artwork means to you and your family. Most oil paintings have had several coats of varnish applied over the years. This varnish will darken over time and combine with decades of smoke and grime resulting in a painting that has become dark and obscured. Many paintings come to us that have been damaged by untrained persons attempting to clean it. Our experts will painstakingly remove the old varnish, patch any holes and paint any areas with damage or missing paint. In most cases our restoration work cannot be detected in the finished painting. A new coat of varnish is applied to enhance and protect your art for many more years of enjoyment. We are able to restore a variety of artworks including oils and acrylics on canvas or board, watercolors, etchings and other paper art.
