Today conservators have the option of either preparing their own conservation paints or purchasing pre-made paints (e.g. Golden PVA Conservation Paints, Gamblin Conservation Colors, etc.). These paints are chemically DIFFERENT from the original materials used by the artist so that they can be easily and safely removed from the surface if necessary. Conservation paints are also tested to ensure that they are lightfast and will not darken or discolor over time.(Pictured Here: Project intern Claire Burns)
