The history of paint. 

Paint analysis is used increasingly in the restoration of historical buildings for two reasons:

    • to form an idea of how a room might have looked at an earlier time. The aim will usually be to identify the colour of a particular scheme, or to see whether techniques such as gilding, graining, or marbling had been used. 
  • To date a structure.  Facts known about the development of paint and pigments will often enable the specialist to work out a rough date for individual layers of paint.  Working alongside architectural researchers, the paint analyst can determine when or where changes have been made. The site of a blocked-in doorway; for example, can be identified, as can the rough date of a later chimneypiece.
