The classical theory of Conservation of Oil Paintings on Canvas and Panel and all types of Fine Art, has necessarily involved only minimal intervention. This is done to retain the integrity of the aged art object and to avoid further damage. However, in other more contemporary cases such as porcelain, ceramics, pottery, jades, ivory collectibles and family heirlooms repair, some clients prefer the invisible repair technique which will return the item to “like new” condition. Even though we typically recommend the use of the best Art Restoration practices, we do honor the customer requests. The products used to conceal cracks for the “invisible repair” can be easily removed without causing additional stress to the artifact.
