Join Dr. Susan Buck for a webinar entitled Using Architectural Paint Analysis to Help Decipher Historic Buildings.
What is architectural paint analysis and what does it entail? Most historic house museums and owners of historic houses are curious about how their buildings were originally painted. Architectural paint samples examined under a microscope can help to document and understand the paint types and colors applied to buildings over time, and to identify original elements and the timing for building alterations and additions. This, in turn, offers important clues about the lives of past inhabitants. In this webinar, you'll look through the microscope with Dr. Susan Buck to see how paint analysis has provided important insights into physical changes at Drayton Hall, the Nathaniel Russell House, the Aiken-Rhett House, Monticello and the University of Virginia historic campus.
