RESTORATION & PRESERVATION THROUGH INVESTIGATION
Each preservation project has two questions: What do we have? and What should we do with it? Through 2 project case studies we will evaluate the use of a historic paint investigation and plaster survey and how, through the investigative process, the restoration of decorative finishes and the preservation of original plaster surfaces were implemented.
