Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Painting Restoration
Program: Internship Course
Period : Jun.1,2015-May,2017
In order to add more practical experience in my career, I decided to study in Florence, the home of restoration work. I wish to improve my painting restoration techniques through experiencing various types of restoration works as well as learning the latest restoration techniques. I am looking forward to letting you know about my daily life in Florence and my weekend visits to churches, museums and so on.
After carefully removing deteriorated substances used in the past restoration work, the plaster filler is applied over each defect. As usually done so, I restore details on the drawing surface on every defect after filing the filler.
When the above work is done, guache is put over as a base color for resin paint colorings. Since the varnish will change the paint color, I keep checking and making true colors using special solvent.
This is another drawing I’m restoring right now. Everywhere the reddish brown base color is showing because of the faded top paint, is precisely colored. I referred to other dragon artworks to restore the unidentifiable dragon face to naturally recognizable level.
