We love a good before and after shot and this job gave in bucket loads.
Many of us have a framed piece of artwork hidden away in the loft or at the back of a cupboard that we have fallen out of love with because its tired, tattered or damaged. We have had many jobs brought into us of this nature and it’s fascinating to see what can be done.
Our customer brought this framed Oil on board Artwork initially to replace the frame completely but we could see the potential of this beautiful frame. We stripped the paint back to bare wood, we then painted with gesso (the Italian word meaning ‘Chalk’) to create a uniform smooth surface without mitred corners. Finally finished with a few coats of white Acrylic paint and the cleaned Artwork was attached back in place…et voilà!
We offer free consultations with our Guild certified Framers who can provide you with a range of options and allow you to make informed decisions on protecting, presenting and preserving your works of art for years to come.
