Subject: Decorative painted surfaces on metal

Decorative painted surfaces on metal

From: Cynthia Jane Gorman <lu_who<-a>

I am a MA student of Metals Conservation working on my dissertation.
I just started to carry out a study of painted metal surfaces. My
practical work will be done on a brass Pugin chandelier that still
has its original decorative paint however the metal is corroded.  I
would like to conserve the paint but stabilize the corrosion. So, my
searching starts for information. I am looking for and would greatly
appreciate any insights, leads to references, articles, books, and
contacts about conservation solutions and techniques used for
objects with paint on metal.
