ACA Paper Restoration offers restoration services for damaged works on paper. Paper is naturally acidic, which is why older works, such as old newspaper, turn yellow or brown as they age. The paper's pH must be neutralized in order to halt the toning, and keep the paper and pigments from deteriorating. The toning can also be cleaned out of the paper, yielding a newer looking piece.
There are a variety of problems that can originate from poor environmental conditions, framing, handling or mishaps. Damage such as stains, tears, mold/mildew, abrasions and creases can detract from both your enjoyment of the piece and its value.
In addition to making a piece look nicer, proper professional restoration and conservation can stabilize its value and in some cases, recover some value lost to damage.
