Cleaning

• This is the most commonly requested service that shows the most immediate and dramatic results. With the careful application of specially formulated solvents and neutralizers, your oil painting will jump back to life with colors returning to their original vibrancy and intensity.

Then the original protective coating(s) of varnish are stripped away. The old varnish has darkened or yellowed with age and must be removed.
