Overview

This fully illustrated step-by-step guide gives a clear account of all aspects of the repair of objects from the simplest everyday plate to a complex porcelain figurine. It is written not only for those who may need good practical and technical information to enable them to restore their own pieces, but also as an invaluable handbook for students and for those working professionally. Along with detailed methods and advice on materials and techniques, the authors discuss the question of conservation and restoration and whether and to what extent valuable items should be restored. Sections range from how to recognize the different types of ceramic body and assess the appropriate technique for their repair, to using fillers to restore and remold missing fragments, and finishing, painting, and gilding. (6 x 9, 112 pages, color photos, b&w photos, diagrams, charts)
