Time isn’t always kind to paintings.

Aged paintings collect airborne dirt, dust, and nicotine that can distort colors and textures.

Layers of soot and varnish can also mask more profound damage. Our restoration process starts with an extensive cleaning of the painting, followed by correcting and matching paint colors, and ends with a UV-coated varnish to protect the paint from airborne contaminants.

Types of damage:

  • Fire
  • Water
  • Tears
  • Stains
  • Dents
  • Dirty
  • Flaking or Chipping Paint
  • Yellowed Varnish
  • Warped Stretcher Bars
  • Unstable Canvases

We are continuously updating our gallery with items that have been restored. Take a look around and feel free to contact us with any questions!

– The “Back In the Frame” Team –

Frames can be just as important as the art and memories they hold.

Over time, they get scratched and chipped.

Depending on the finish and sentimental value, these frames are worth restoring. Scratches and chips can be touched up to blend in. If pieces are missing, the frames can be molded to create new pieces, making it look like it was never damaged.

Prior to any frame or painting restoration, the artwork is removed from its’ frame and every component is given the care and attention it needs.

Conservation Clear®, Museum Glass®, and archival framing materials are available upon request.
