Wheathills Restore Antique Furniture
For Dealing With Dickinson - Page 2
||The existing veneer has been badly
damaged. As the veneer was originally fixed with reversible
animal glue, Marcus is able to secure the remaining
veneer and delicately create curves and shapes. This
enables the replacement veneer to be sympathetically
fixed into position. All of the jagged edges are removed
thus when the piece goes to the Finishers they will
be able to blend all repairs to the surrounding shades.
|Nigel explains the type of skills , methods and
material required to conserve the patina of these
chairs. Our view is to provide the minimum but essential
work required to revive an original finish. We first
gently clean the finish taking great care not to disturb
the natural signs of age and patina, colour blend
all repairs to the surrounding shade and revive the
original finish with an oil / beeswax composition.
||Daniel is colour blending all replacement
details that have been spliced in by the Cabinet Makers.
We only use natural earth pigments and dyes because
they blend in so well with the natural shades of Antique
The natural patination of a genuine antique finish
has an infinite number of colours, it takes years
of experience to be able to blend the natural pigments
layer by layer to create the tonal variety that is
so essential to the finished piece.
