Toning antique doors is a process that requires not only experience, but also a lot of patience and endurance of the art restorer. The color of the glaze we choose will affect the color of the door. Since over time the tree changes its original color, it is necessary to choose the right tone for the glaze. Here you need experience in tinting antique objects, as well as mastery of many technological nuances.

You can apply the glaze to the surface of the ready-made door with a quality paint brush – flute, or tint it with rags. The stain is applied abundantly and evenly along the fibers. Each type of wood absorbs and perceives the color of the glaze differently and changes color when drying.

In our workshop, we perform toning with water- and alcohol-based glazes, applied with a flute or a cloth. At the same time, the glaze enters the structure of the tree in a special way and reveals the pattern and texture of the wood. After this toning, the door has a real look without losing the shades of antiquity and time.

Each item to be restored is unique. In this regard, the costs of restoration work are calculated separately in each case.

Renovation prices depend on many factors, such as:

  • the condition of the furniture itself;
  • the nature of the damage (presence of cracks, chips, violation of decorative elements, veneer condition, etc.);
  • complexity of renovation works;
  • usage of consumable material in the restoration process.

Each object needs an individual approach and individual methods of restoration. There are no fixed prices for such works.
Therefore, it is difficult to indicate a certain amount of labor costs in a telephone conversation, and sometimes even an approximate one.

The conditions of restoration directly depend on the complexity and scope of the restoration work.

Each restoration begins with a preliminary inspection of the item to more objectively assess its condition. During the inspection, you can accurately determine the cost of restoring the item. Since the external condition of the object, the condition of key elements and the integrity of the carpentry structure can be inferred from the photograph, the presence of internal hidden defects remains unclear.
