Cleaning of Acrylic Painted Surfaces

The workshop series Cleaning of Acrylic Painted Surfaces (CAPS) began in 2009 and has reached over 65 practicing conservators through workshops in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Washington DC with future workshops planned for Australia, Europe, and Southeast Asia. The workshops aim to disseminate a wealth of new information and research about acrylic paints, and to help conservators put it into practice in a way that can be tailored to address specific problems and contexts.

The didactic materials below were created for the workshop series. New materials will be added as they are developed.
