Cleaning of modern oil and acrylic paints
This three-day course focuses on the conservation-restoration of modern oil and acrylic paints, their specificities and the cleaning solutions developed during their research.
Sessions are made up of a theoretical morning followed by a practical afternoon. The first day will begin with a historical overview of the uses and properties of modern paintings; the second day will present current research on acrylic emulsion paints and modern oil paintings ; and the third day will summarize the results of the research and outline the various cleaning options available.
The practical sessions will focus on methods of removing dirt and grime from these sensitive pictorial layers using a wide range of solutions, including aqueous methods, solvents, micro-emulsions, gels and their application.
This training course will present current methodologies and practices based on the latest international research in this field and will develop a methodological and rigorous approach to these often very complex and difficult cases.
