FRAMING AND TERMINATION PROCESS
The works acquire a permanent protection and a matt finish without the inconvenience
of the crystals and their reflections.
The polymer varnishes used are protectors of ultraviolet light and humidity
making the colors stay in time and allowing the cleaning of the works
The paintings are preserved without the need for a frame (this being always optional)
PHASES OF THE PROCESS:
1- Hydration of paper and subsequent ironing
2- Gluing the linen fabric on the wood
3- Gluing the paper on the fabric and pressing for 12 hours
4- Masking and application of special gesso for paspartous
5- Painted paspartous and dried.
6- Application of a layer of archival fixative varnish with acetone
7- Application of 4 successive layers of UVLS polymer varnish
8- Application of a last layer of protective matte varnish
