Kings Fund – Painting Restoration
Painting Restoration required by the Kings Fund for minor damage to a triptych by Gerald Mynott. The painting had a number of scratches in the surface and the frame had some damage to the gilding and the gesso preparation. This damage had been caused by daily traffic through the offices – tea trolleys etc.
The scratches in the paint surface were retouched with a reversible treatment of pigments in an acrylic resin binder.
The damage to the frame was repaired using traditional materials and 23.5crt gold leaf. Once completed the surface was distressed and toned with pigments in an organic binder to match the original surface.
Once the painting restoration had been completed it was returned to the Kings Fund and re-installed.
