Dan will discuss and demonstrate painting techniques related to restoration practice. There will be explanation of support materials such as full scale polycarbonate transparencies, facsimile glass, examples of historic and modern metal work and environmental and chemical glass analysis documentation. Part of the session is potentially hands on, so that the delegates can have first hand experience with some of the techniques previously shown and discussed.
