Our Lady Star of the Sea, Seaforth, Merseyside
The sacred heart Reredos. Three paintings on canvas which were very dark due to progressive layers of candle soot and darkened varnish.
The grime and varnish was removed revealing the original stunningly vibrant colours. The lining/backing was removed from the painting, and the surface of the paper was cleaned using a dry method. When this procedure was complete it was then remounted onto a new support. The tears were retouched.
