Day 109- The End is in Sight


The team are nearing the end of the painting conservation project after months of pain staking work.

Recently Gail and Henry have been filling in cracks in the wooden panel with plaster and painting over the plaster to bring the painting back to it’s former, unified glory.

After a coat of varnish they will assess the paint work as the varnish makes the details easier to see.

The varnish layer is then left to dry for a few days and in a weeks time the painting will finally be ready to be wrapped up once more and moved into the Tapestry Gallery to climatize before re-hanging.
