Paint Analysis for Historic Buildings
The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT)
NCPTT - Lee H. Nelson Hall
Natchitoches, LA
May 7-9, 2013

The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT)
will host a three-day hands-on workshop on the identification and
analysis of historic architectural paints and finishes. The workshop
will be held May 7-9, 2013 at NCPTT's Lee H. Nelson Hall in
Natchitoches, LA.

The analysis of architectural paints and finishes, as opposed to
those used in the field of fine art, has developed from its infancy
where paint was scraped on site to the present where scientific
analysis is being undertaken not only to determine historic colors,
but also to determine other aspects of finishes such as composition
and application methods.  David Arbogast, an architectural
conservator with over thirty years of experience in the area of
historic architectural paint analysis, will provide hands-on
instruction in the microscopic analysis of historic architectural
paints and other finishes. The workshop will include a visit to a
local historic building where students will take samples for
analysis using microscopy. A registration fee of $500 covers
instruction, course materials, and equipment.
