This project consisted of picture frame restoration of two frames from the Littleton Library in Littleton, NH.  We cleaned, restored and repaired the frames while the art was being cleaned and restored.  The frames were carefully vacumed and washed using Vulpex soap and water.  Two of the eight leaf motif corner moldings required part or whole replacement.  Two of the corners with the least damage were repaired and molded. New corners were cast with Hydrocoat plaster (plaster of Paris) and several smaller areas of the frames were also repaired.  The repairs were then painted and touched up to match the original paint.
