Conservation: Tools of the Trade

Art conservation is a fascinating field! It's all about preserving and restoring artworks using scientific tools and methods. Conservators use microscopes, UV lights, and X-rays to examine art closely. They also use special tools and materials to clean and repair artworks. This helps keep art alive for future generations to enjoy!
