Zebra print tear before

Our studio regularly receives paper that has been torn due to an accident or following a household disaster, such as a flood or fire. 

Our ICON accredited paper conservator is able to professionally restore issues such as:

  • Mould growth and moisture disturbances
  • Foxing, staining and discolouration
  • Tears and creasing
  • Water damage
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Acidic mount and frame deterioration
  • Damages following a household disaster or accident

Our trained conservation team can professionally bring fibres back together and further stabilise the artwork or document on acid-free tissue.

If required, small amounts of colour can be retouched to lessen any visual impact caused by the prior damage.

The results following this type of restoration often amaze our clients, returning the artwork back to its original state and importantly stabilising it for safe preservation.

We offer protective framing options to replace broken frames or to provide new conservation-appropriate display options for the ongoing safety of the artwork or document.

How much will my restoration cost?

Although my print was badly degraded by the artist's use of double-sided tape and an acidic backing mount, it had great emotional significance for me. It felt like a risky leap of faith to send it as I had not used Fine Art Restoration Company before. It came back immaculate and transformed, returned to its original condition and with no discernable damage to the subtle graphite drawing. The company were reassuring and returned it with no hassle. Highly recommended.

We sent in a very mouldy print that came back probably in better condition than when it was bought! We were constantly updated as to the status of the restoration and the service was impeccable. We had previously sent in a small oil painting for cleaning that now hangs in pride of place. Both had sentimental value of familiar places. I can highly recommend the quality of the work and the fantastic customer service.
