There are many different types of damage that can lead to the need for oil painting repair, and several techniques to assure that the repair is done properly.
The restorer can retouch flaking, cracking and expansive areas of missing paint, along with rebuilding areas of missing canvas, reattaching the canvas or linen to stretching bars, and fixing tears and rips. The restorer also addresses many other issues that can inhibit a painting.
Paintings that are very old, to works completed more recently, can require much work to the elemental structure of the oil. The restorer uses new paints that mix well with the original medium that essentially marry the work so the painting won’t degenerate over time.
