Gainsborough’s Complete Manual of Oil Painting Restoration is a comprehensive “how to” text explaining the use of Gainsborough’s products in the restoration of oil paintings.

The manual includes procedures for cleaning, varnish and linoxyn removal, conditioning, canvas patching and lining, consolidating loose paint, facing, filling in repaired tears, inpainting, and varnishing oil paintings.

There are also chapters on the use of ultraviolet light for inspection of paintings, cleaning of graphics and watercolors, building a thymol cabinet, frame glazing, technical tips and more. The Manual provides metric equivalents for most measurements. Illustrations throughout show techniques and procedures to be used as well as “before” and “after” views of paintings.

Important - the information given in this excellent text is not enough to qualify the reader as a professional restorer. William Goodenough. 118pp. (USA) #B-5000
