Some simple jobs, others are more involved
Sometimes picture frames get badly damaged in one ‘big’ accident.
More commonly, the frame is damaged a little at a time over an extended period, decades maybe. It is the last chip which acts as “the straw that broke the camel’s back” prompting someone to bring it in for repair.
This frame had a number of small areas of damage which the team at Gadsby’s fixed. The process involves cleaning off any more loose bits of the frame. Filling the gaps and replicating the moulding and then repainting the whole frame, or sometimes just the repaired parts. At the same time, the painting was cleaned and oiled too.
