OIL PAINTING RESTORATION 1932




OIL  RESTORATION FROM 1932

WWW.ANABELA-ARTIST.COM


This 1932 oil painting needed some care. There was crackling, and a new backing needed to be added to stabilize the loss of paint on the face of the painting. This art restoration was a great challenge, images were put in this video to show the art repair from the beginning until it was completed and reframed in the same frame the oil painting was originally framed. The removal of linseed oil and mastic varnish was completed successfully. New isolating coat of semigloss varnish with UV protectant mix was added at the end to protect and complete the work. Art restoration in Virginia. www.anabela-artist.com/restorations/ This video is only intended to show the steps necessary to complete this oil restoration and repair. I had the wonderful opportunity to actually take a look and a picture to the actual vase used in this video. This vase will stay with the painting and will be passed on for many more generations.

HOW TO RESTORE AN OIL IMPASTO PAINTING


Oil Impasto Restoration 

This is a video made by the restorer, it is not made by digital professional video makers. The painting was lined to a new canvas, adding some weight to flatten afterwards, but being careful that the impasto does not melt I used felt and light weight. The darkened varnish was removed, and inpainting was necessary to complete the final piece. Videos how to restore oil painting are found in this channel, feel free to send me any questions you have. www.anabela-artist.com or email me anabela7973@aol.com Springfield Virginia servicing Fairfax County, Maryland, and Washington DC.
