Frame Restoration

Cleaning the frame that has an accumulation of dirt

The gold paint looks bright when first applied but with exposure to the atmosphere, will oxidise over time and darken to a dull brown.

Repair of damaged frames

Decorative mouldings on the frame that have been damaged or lost can been recast and applied to the remaining decoration.

These repairs can then be toned to blend in with the original appearance of the frame.

Repair of Broken Corners: One Example

Frayed wood is cut out and hard wood (ramin)
is pinned and glued in place to give a very firm base for the
plaster and filling
Missing decoration replaced with modelling clay

Larger areas of decoration
are replaced with cast Plaster
of Paris.

The finished job
