"Restoration" - The Workbench Glossary




Restoration is a treatment process in which the stated objective is to return the piece back to a known or assumed former state. Any treatment that adds material to, removes material from, or modifies the object is technically performing a restorative function. These treatments are typically activities such as structural repair to wooden components, inpainting to compensate for areas of lost color, consolidation or reamalgamation of a degraded varnish, etc.
