How We Restore Metal Sculptures, Statues, and Other Art Objects
When we receive an art object, we first examine the sources of damage and develop a plan in consultation with its owner. Generally, we clean the bronze pieces of surface films such as accumulated lacquer and wax, and then determine what surface oxides are to be modified or removed. Then we analyze and correct breaks, abrasions, and gouges. Throughout the process, we are careful not to interfere with existing patinas or painted surfaces. We will re-patinate overly polished surfaces, or places where the patina has chipped or worn away, to restore the bronze to the artist’s originally intended appearance.
