Scott M. Haskins, Fine Art Conservator and his widely known and esteemed company, FACL, Inc. has been providing art conservation and painting restoration services in Orange County, CA since 1984. Some of our clients include the Laguna Beach Art Festival, the Laguna Art Museum, the 5 Crowns Restaurant (actually the corporation owns 9 similar places and we do work for them all), the Bowers Museum, art dealers, art appraisers, decorators and numerous private clients . Services are provided on a continual basis, even making appearances as a consultant for art related insurance claims, as legal testimony and to give collection care and disaster planning workshops to members and docents as their art conservation expert and author of How To Save Your Stuff From A Disaster.

Routinely, a call comes into our office (805 564 3438) or by email ( and we chat over the phone. When we get a call to restore a painting, clean a painting, fix artwork, repair a rip in a canvas painting, analyze a painting we schedule a personal visit to look over/evaluate the artwork at your location, offering a estimate of the work up front at no charge. Then, if the work is to be done, we offer PU/Delivery to your home or office. The work’s schedule, however, needs to coordinate with our other project pick ups and deliveries in the area.  We work on small family heirloom pieces, on California Impressionist pictures, on Post War Expressionism Art and on Old Master paintings. One of our specializations is the restoration of murals.   See this quick 2 min. video testimonial about our background:

    Dear Scott: It was great meeting you yesterday. I just want to let you know how much we are thrilled with your restoration expertise and the consulting you are doing for the Prado Dam Mural. It is a wonderful boost for our community and serves as a great gateway greeting into Corona, Riverside and about 5 or 6 other communities. It sounds like you folks are on a fast track with the proper connections and interest to get the mural restored. Let me know if I or our rag tag group can assist in any way to facilitate this. As you had mentioned, the maintenance of the mural will be an ongoing challenge. It will be important to determine what agencies(y) will spear head that responsibility. As I had mentioned I would be happy to serve as a community watchdog for its preservation. We are hopeful that it will be protected from graffiti which, in the past, has marred so badly this important public art for anyone driving by on the freeways. Please keep me up to date on the progress in the complete restoration process. Sincerely yours, Warren

  4. A print has its 4 corners glued to the back mat (Lichtenstein’s Crying Girl – worth about 50K). It needs to be freed. Do you do this kind of work? Thanks
