Oil paintings: We clean, re-varnish, repair tears, stretch/re-stretch canvas, repair and repaint holes. Consult in person with our master painter on what can or should be done to restore and protect your oil paintings. We also repair acrylic and mixed media paintings.
Paper: We touch up or eliminate foxing (brown spots), clean acid burn from old matting, clean water stains, destroy and touch up mold and mildew, repair tears and holes, flatten curled up or wavy art, re-mount, re-tape art that has come loose in its frame or matting, touch up scratches and recolor old art that has faded. Sheepskin touch up and care is provided, however, in the case of flattening sheepskin, the age and state may determine how flat it will become without mounting.
Fabric: We stretch and re-stretch needlepoint, repair tears and holes, re-frame and clean fabric art (including silk). We test all fabric for strength and color fastness before all jobs.
Frames: We repair broken corners, guild silver and gold frames, repair and replace missing ornaments, touch up nicks and scratches, clean and re-varnish wood. We repair or replace broken easel backs and re-wire frames.
Fine Furniture: We clean and re-guild gold and silver leaf, and repair broken details and ornaments on
furniture, fine keepsakes, and delicate silk screens.
Mirrors and broken glass: We replace broken mirrors and glass on framed art, including non-glare, UV-blocking,
oval, round and convex glass.
Photographs: We touch up, flatten, repair tears and mount old photographs. Only repair and preservation are performed on original photographs. Any changes to the image are only performed on digital copies. Digital restoration is available, including color correction to faded and discolored photos and colorization to black and white photos. We can separate photographs that have been stuck together or to glass, however, the outcome depends on the severity of the damage. In the case of an original work stubbornly attached to glass, a digital restoration is recommended.
