"If you would like to see more exclusive content, behind the scenes footage and live Q&As then please visit my Patreon page and consider supporting the channel:   / bloomfieldartrestoration   In this episode we carry on cleaning the painting, starting with the face and the wig. We remove a very discoloured varnish. We learn about "full bottom wigs" and start to retouch the portrait late into the night! We also make a decision on what to do with the extender piece we found last episode. 0:00 - Introduction 0:21 - Face cleaning 5:02 - Wig cleaning and history 9:06 - Swab checking 9:25 - Extender piece decision 9:56 - Applying barrier varnish 10:30 - Retouching extender 12:30 - Retouching rips and tears 14:07 - The night shift 15:23 - Credits" from video introduction
