Watercolor Painting Repair
The acidity of the paper is known cause changes in the pigment of the watercolor painting and appearance of the piece. The pH of the paper not being neutralized can cause issues with the image over time. If there is a harmful acidic mat, tape or backing to the piece, we will remove it and replace it with a material that will not cause damage to the artwork. Excess moisture or chemicals are also causes of disturbance to the physical structure of the piece. A variety of reasons cause discoloration; including fading from light, “foxing,” which refers to reddish-brown stains, and iron marks. Special chemicals are used to remove stains on the painting. The watercolor paper used for your painting is constantly absorbing impurities and moisture around it.
With older pieces, it is possible that a wooden backing board was used, which discharges resin and stains the paper it touches. More recently, Masonite and museum boards have been used instead, which do not harm the painting. Older rag watercolor paper has impurities that cause spotting on the painting as it gets older.
