|INSIDE:||150 colour photographs|
Practical Ceramic Conservation is the essential handbook for everyone interested in the conservation of ceramics, whether their aim is to pursue a career in this field or to mend a favourite plate.
Written by two leading conservators, it explains the various stages of the conservation process. Step-by-step instructions and examples show how staining may be removed, cracks stabilized, pieces rebonded, moulds taken, areas retouched, lustres applied and gilding restored.
Reference information provides an invaluable aid for anyone unsure about the different qualities of clay, solvents, adhesives, bulking agents, plaster, paints and varnishes.
