Restoration of an Extremely Old Framed Picture
We received a call, then paid a visit to what ended up being a very large residence. In the tatami room, there, ever so casually hung the framed picture. It was covered in years worth of dust and moisture and had been exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, leaving the picture almost unrecognizable. The undercoat and edges were also extremely damaged, so we cleaned it, attached a new underlayer of sturdy wagami, remade the gold mat and edges, and to protect it from the effects of aging we finished it by adding a layer of acrylic. The picture that had darkened to the point of being unrecognizable had come back to life, leaving the clients immensely pleased.
