Gilding & Inpainting

A range of re-gilding and in-painting activities can be undertaken by O’Sullivan Conservation, from localised gilding repairs and in-painting to a total re-gilding, or the removal of old restoration works to reveal the original finish of the object. Additionally, where a conservation repair has been performed on a gilded or painted object, in-gilding and in-painting can be undertaken to match the existing finish, including any toning works that are required.

O’Sullivan Conservation can perform gilding and in-painting on a wide range of materials and objects, including stone monuments and, wooden and metal objects.
