the Academy are pleased to announce that bookings have now been
re-opened for a *repeat* presentation of this course. Please note
that the repeat presentation actually precedes the fully booked

    Colour fills for the Conservation of Ceramics and Glass
    Duration: 6 days
    Cost: $1,200 including accommodations

    A mid-career course 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 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 prove of equal relevance and value
    to restorers, who will appreciate the subject's possibilities
    also in studio restoration. The following materials used in the
    preparation of Colour Fills will be covered: Epoxy resins
    (Araldite 20/20, Hxtal NYL1, Fynebond, AY103 and HY936) Acrylic
    polymers (Paraloid B72, Paraloid B44, Paraloid B67) Vinyl
    polymers (Vinamul 3252, Mowital B30H, Mowiol/PVA) Cellulose
    derivatives (cellulose nitrate) as well as polyester resin.
    Bulking agents include titanium dioxide, gesso powder, marble
    filler, pumice powder, fumed silica's (OK412 and AR200) glass
    bubbles/balloons, hollofill, glass beads and phenolic resin.
