The above photos show the restoration process of the 14th Station which was an oil painting on a copper sheet. The paint had flaked off considerably in the blue background, exposing the copper. The entire Station was covered with a layer of dust and smoke from the years it hung in the church.
Anna Drewes took on the project with the goal of keeping as much of the original artwork as possible, and conserving what was still present in the piece. Anna was successful in this regard.
She was able to remove the smoke build-up in the figures and foreground, then seal over those areas. The areas that had flaked off in the blue background were first filled in, then the areas were painted to match the rest of the blue area.
