Description
This four and a half day intensive course is designed for conservators wishing to improve their mastery of filling and inpainting skills. A broad overview of this complicated topic is covered, as well as considerable attention to details critical for various points of the compensation process. Keys to problem solving are offered to help conservators find appropriate and successful treatment solutions for differing compensation challenges.
A combination of lectures, discussion, demonstrations and hands-on studio/laboratory practice sessions will cover the following:

  • Filling & Inpainting criteria
  • Adaption of environments for each compensation require-ment
  • Light, color and optics: theory and practical phenomena
  • Survey of pigments and their properties
  • Preparation for compensation: isolation and fills material techniques
  • Inpainting media and toning systems: resins (natural & syn-thetic), watercolor, gums, cellulose fiber, pencils, pastels, dry pigments and other coloring agents
  • Formulation of inpainting palettes and diluents and media
  • Inpainting modifiers: bulking, matting, polishing and glossing agents
  • Color palettes, brushes, application instruments, methods, and tips
  • Medium / pigment/ diluent variations for adjusting surface sheen: high gloss, lean/ matte, transparent, opaque, stained and other structures
  • Simulation of patina and age effects

Philosophical dialogue: degrees and appropriateness of com-pensation; discernibility, longevity and reversibility of restora-tions
