Consolidation of Flaking Paint

Changes in temperature, water damage and accidental mechanical damage, often cause the paint and/or ground layer to detach from the canvas support or wooden panel of a painting.

The consolidation of lifted paint is one of the most important treatments undertaken to paintings. To prevent paint losses, which very often coincide with a loss in value, lifting and flaking paint has to be re-adhered locally from the front.


The measures we take to preserve and restore all take into account the most modern standards of practice. Nevertheless we always consider the historical techniques and traditionel materials.
