Many collectors wooden clock cases finishes have oxidized, been deteriorated by environmental conditions or abused from neglect. This short course will provide the collector with the capability of rejuvenating his cases finishes with little to no finish experience in the past. When a film finish begins to break down, the next step is that the environment can undermine the veneer and cause delamination. Hammer veneering will be demonstrated if this is the case. Theory, demonstration and hands on practice for students in the following areas; materials, French polishing, brush application, wood surface blemish repairs, coloring in repairs using reversable techniques, moving existing patina and finish over the newly repaired area. Students will see how easy, fast and inexpensive it is to breath new life into their wood cases just like a professional conservator. Students are required to bring in their own clock cases to work on, ie 4 or 5 mantles or OGEE'S.
