I am a member of team "Atelier Jovan" in charge for conservation and
restoration of gilded objects made of wood. Please see
<URL:>. Maybe, you can find my
experiences with non-traditional materials and techniques
interesting and useful to you. If you need more details please
contact me. Also god idea is to visit JAIC at:
<URL:> and search the resources they
offer. I had luck few times, to find very good information there.
