Ceramics Repair's restorers will repair and restore a wide range of materials including ceramics, pottery, china, porcelain, clay, terracotta, resin, earthenware, stoneware and other such materials.
Our restoration team undertakes many different types of restoration, Using a wide selection of glazes and paints, selected according to the client’s requirements, we undertake many different types of repair and restoration. For instance, if a repair project should demand a cold glaze restoration then we select the facility to carry out this particular method.
There are a variety of repair and restoration techniques which we can carry out. This is all dependent on which materials the item is made from. Materials such as plaster, clay and resin we would carry out a cold restoration using either acrylic-based glazes and paints or solvent-based glazes and paints. This is decided after the item is evaluated.
The restorers also offer what they term as a museum repair or restoration - a type of high-level restoration, which requires neither glaze nor paint. Any missing segments would be reconstructed using colour related resin and would completely seal any cracks.
With items composed of materials such as ceramic, china and porcelain, the restorer would normally use an oven to bake the restoration. If a cold restoration is required this will be decided after the item has been evaluated. In using the oven we would not exceed 250 degrees to 300 degrees Celsius and we would use solvent-based paints and glazes.
The team's aim is to offer the client the exact repair or restoration, which suits the project’s demands, to an exacting, high standard and one which is in line with the client’s budget.
