Antique icons are highly delicate items that require skillful handling and expert care, especially when it comes to the restoration works. Preserving icons incorrectly can do irreparable damage, and, therefore, it is of utmost importance to choose the right method of restoration for each particular item. At Russian Icon, we carefully examine the icon to determine the appropriate treatment and the best course of action to take. Restoration works may include:
• archeological restoration aimed at the preservation of the overpainting and previously restored fragments of the icon;
• preservation of the original and surviving parts of the antique icon, without reconstruction of the losses;
• reconstruction of colors and tonal unity of the icon to recapture its original artistic idea;
• complete restoration and renovation of the icon to its original condition, including structural and finish repairs;
• finish restoration to bring an existing finish back to life with the use of original materials and solvents;
• icon conservation to stop or slow the deterioration of the original condition and preserve the finish of the item.
