"Inpainting" - The Workbench Glossary



 

in·paint·ing

[in-peynt-ing]
verb
A restorative painting procedure focusing on reestablishing color, sheen, and texture to areas of loss on the historic surface of artifacts. This cosmetic treatment attempts to return aesthetic unity to an object. It is differentiated from “overpainting” by limiting the introduction of paint medium to areas of loss only.
