As paintings age, they undergo various changes in appearance. Grimy soot accumulates on the surface of paints. Paint breaks into a network of cracks. Varnish becomes yellow. The canvas may sag of become detached from the stretcher. Temperature and humidity fluctuations cause paint to lift and flake off. Improper storage or transportation accidents can cause dents, bulges, hole and tears. Ornate frames are beautiful, large and bulky unless you kept them in a museum quality environment. Happily, most paintings can be restored, even those that appear to be beyond help. Some restoration services include repairing lining, relining, face lining, frame restoration, cleaning and frame repair.
