Large paintings need special handling to make sure the paint is not stressed:

and… doing structural work on two paintings. The closest one needed previous restorations removed and then a new  “lining” to correct and stabilize cracking. The second did not require undoing previous restorations but needed a consolidation and warmth to stabilize flaking.

    We’re a bunch of volunteers and I was wondering if you give tours of your lab and give demonstrations? You’re performing an impressive work on these murals and our whole community is grateful to you.
