Art Supplies Used to Restore Art

I went to a conservation event at the Museum of Fine Arts here in Boston (MFA Boston).  Professional conservators were in one of the exhibits sharing how they restore and preserve the art on display. 

Do you see what I see?!

I spy art supplies that I use all the time!  Golden Fluid Acrylics:

Aves Apoxie Sculpt:

And Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics:

I thought it was super duper cool to know that professional conservators are fixing up ancient art with the same supplies I use to create my art!  I chatted with some of the conservators and they said that these supplies were chosen because of their quality, consistency, and ability to be removed if needed.  Those first two reasons -- quality and consistency -- are the reasons I choose these art supplies too!

Thanks for stopping by!
