PAINT DRIERS DISCUSSED IN 19TH-CENTURY BRITISH OIL PAINTING MANUALS

LESLIE CARLYLE



5 CONCLUSIONS

It will no doubt be some time before we as conservators and researchers are able to positively relate the use of specific driers with specific paint defects in the works we study and treat. However, by knowing what materials were available, and when, we can at least begin an exploration of these questions.
