The conservation process is focused on the preservation of an item that may need care due to atmospheric pollution, discolored varnish, tobacco smoke, soot, flaking pigments, or simple deterioration over time. Swiatek Studios recognizes the need for the proper cleaning and care of your artistic items and will provide the highest level of professional skill and service, while respecting the integrity of your artwork. Our professionals will determine the extent of surface damage and will begin the process by cleaning the item to remove grime, dirt, and other build-up. Then we carefully remove the old yellowed varnish to expose the true colors and vibrancy of your artwork. All of these conditions can be restored using non-destructive methods and reversible materials and techniques.
Our talented artists can design, conserve, replicate, or restore damaged and aged murals and works of art for all ecclesiastical, commercial, and residential project needs. Our staff is well trained in mural replication and design, as well as the use of conservation methods to preserve original work, which may have been painted over, damaged, or aged by rainwater, smoke, dirt, or plaster damage. Our skilled team is well versed in the application of murals, which can help bring a new look to your interior space.
Emphasize any room, column, or surface with faux marble to create a dramatic accent and elegant interior design. Our team uses a process of layering tinted transparent glaze over a base coat to create distinctive veining, patterns, and textures unique to each marble finish.
Swiatek Studios can accent walls, ceilings, or doorways with a technique that involves extremely realistic imagery to create illusions of three-dimensional paintings, woodwork, carved surfaces, or shelves. This technique utilizes light, shadows, and texture to “trick the eye.”
