At the end of each restoration comes the retouch work, which is something I particularly enjoy. Newly introduced wood, cracks or worn areas, for example on the shoulder where the hand wears the varnish, are retouched with colour and varnish so that nothing is visible to the naked eye. With colleagues I have dedicated a lot of time to retouch varnish and we have developed our own varnish which helps us to achieve the desired result. Another process which we use is the Micro-friction technique allows us to remove dirt and superfluous varnish layers incredibly precisely whilst not damaging the original varnish.
