Architectural Paint Research
Like wall painting conservation, it requires research in art and architectural history, with a detailed understanding of painting techniques and materials over time.
APR is usually commissioned to understand and recreate the decoration scheme of a particular historical period. Through the examination of the layers of surviving paint as evidence, APR may also greatly contribute to our knowledge of the structural development of a building.
