The restoration of watercolour paintings is a particularly delicate process as paintings are often completed on fragile paper.
Before attempting to clean a watercolour, the paper must be tested as the method to clean the artwork may differ depending on the type and date of the paper.
Watercolour restoration can involve the treatment and removal of foxing and mould from its surface. This can be done by careful surface cleaning by dry methods and depending on the paper the artwork can be cleaned by aqueous treatments using very mild bleaching agents appropriate to the amount of discolouration and foxing the artwork may have.
