Services For Historic Structures And Interiors
We have craftsmen who are specialists in decorative painting. Finishes such as gilding, glazing, marbling, wood graining, and stenciling are most frequently requested, but are not limited to these. To see photos of the restoration of a ceiling originally painted by famed bird artist Athos Menaboni click on the copper gilded sphinx.
We can help you with all phases of your project, from evaluation and documentation to pricing and execution. We can also determine original materials, colors, and methods and create a guide for the conservation, preservation or restoration of original finishes. Below is a list of question and answers to be considered when contemplating the treatment of painted surfaces.
1. Will there be paint analysis? Methods:
2. Should this analysis be done by a specialist or staff personnel?
3. Conservation or restoration? Factors to consider.
4. What materials should be used?
5. Paint removal, yes or no?
6. How about cleaning?
Without experience and attention to detail and proper methods there is a real risk of leaving behind compounds that can cause long term damage and confound later efforts. Please, let us work with you to read the past before you start.
