Surface cleaning of dirt, smoke, and the accumulated unwanted “Stuff” that adheres to the surface of an oil painting. Original varnish removal, over time, varnish begins to darken, ‘it’s as if you are viewing the painting though amber-brown tinted glasses’. Combined with the accumulation of years of dirt, smoke and grime, the result is a painting that has become dark with many details obscured or lost. The repair and stabilisation of the picture support i.e. Wood panel, metal, paper, cardboard, composition board and canvas, professional picture restoration by painting restorer Alan Brown
Alan has just cleaned an oil painting that has great sentimental value to me. He managed to fit the work into his busy schedule and has done an amazing job. The picture has been truly brought back to life and has been re-stretched nicely into its frame. Can't recommend Alan's work highly enough. I am delighted.
Alan has just finished cleaning and restoring a cherished early 19th century oil painting for us , taking the care and trouble to fix "bubbling" where the paper had lifted from the backing board and removing overpainting from an earlier "restoration". Not only has he beautifully restored and brought life back to the painting, he also cleaned the original frame, toning the surface down so that it doesn't look glaringly new. The whole is a total transformation and we are delighted with the result.
Alan did a great job in restoring a much loved painting and frame following an accident, invisibly repairing missing paint and consolidating loose areas. The frame looks better than ever. Would thoroughly recommend.
My Grandfather's portrait fell off the wall and got damaged. I have collected the painting today and it looks superb. Better than I could have imagined and the frame is complete again and golden. really pleased with this service. Very happy to recommend.
A family painting from 1956 needed lots of TBC following years of neglect. Alan's work in restoring the painting has brought it back to life and is just fantastic. Delivery, payment and collection during covid-19 was effortless. Definitely recommended. Many thanks.
I took in an old family painting with a rip in the canvass and looking rather sad. Collected it today and was amazed at how much Alan had achieved. No tear and much more vibrant, much as I remember as a child.
Looking forward to many more years of admiring the painting on the wall.
Well worth the time spent on it, thanks.
Excellent Work! Alan reframed a piece I had purchased, giving it a modern frame and replacing the broken glass. It looks exactly how I imagined it to look, and I would 100% recommend. Also very well packaged and fast shipping! Thank you very much.
Thank you Mr Brown for your hard work. We are now able to enjoy the 6 paintings, that you have restored, as they should be.
