Restoration of a oil painting from the 1800s: The canvas was deteriorating and needed to be lined with Belgian linen. The beeswax and resin lining stabilized the paint from flaking off the canvas. New stretcher bars were made and the painting was restretched. The painting was cleaned to remove the old varnish. The oil was retouched with a special paint and the painting was sealed with varnish. Photographs were taken before, during, and after. The restoration was a success!
