Colour fills for the Conservation of Ceramics and Glass
Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies
Mt. Carroll IL
May 13-18, 2002

A six-day, mid-career course dealing with colour(ed) fills for the
conservation and restoration of ceramics and glass is being offered
at the Campbell Center for Historic Preservation Studies, Mt.
Carroll, IL, USA

A specialist short course developed for conservators and restorers
of ceramics and glass. This is a hands-on, practical course that
teaches the practices and techniques for custom mixing and applying
translucent, semi-translucent and opaque fills that matches (to the
desired degree) the ceramic or glass object in terms of colour,
hardness, texture and opacity. The theory of colour pigments will
also be treated. While this curriculum takes full account of current
conservation ethics, it will also prove of equal relevance and value
to restorers, who will appreciate the subject's possibilities also
in studio restoration.
