Solubility Testing of Arthur-Dominique Rosaire’s Dawn on the River

Join Spencer for the tedious, but exciting process of solubility testing. The goal is to find a safe and suitable solution for surface cleaning and varnish removal. A safe solution won’t damage the delicate paint layers. Testing each colour is essential. Suitable solutions will also effectively remove the dirt and varnish layers. Come see the true colours of Dawn on the River be revealed.
