より実践的な経験を積むために、修復の都フィレンツェで学ぶことにしました。多くの事例に触れ技術の向上を目指し、最新の処置法や素材などもしっか り勉強していきたいと思います。こちらでの生活の様子やイベント、週末に訪れる教会や美術館などもお伝えしていきたいと思います。宜しくお願いします。

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.

I started working on another restoration work. At first I completely got rid of the old filler used for the past restoration work. I then filled deficits with new filler made with plaster and glue. After all dried, I scraped the filler to even out the height with surrounding paint color. I then rebuilt the brush traces and cracks so they looked naturally connected with surrounding paints. Every work is done under diagonal lighting so shadows of small unevenness are clearly visible.
