Handpainted Woodwork

Handpainted Woodwork

With hand painted woodwork, the varnish layers should not be removed entirely (stripped), but they may be reduced by a skilled conservator. As with the example on the left, the right side has been reduced to the original varnish layer, and the painted elements have been gently cleaned utilizing an emulsified solvent gel, yielding conservative, yet impressive results.
