International Academic Projecs for Professional Development Programme

Tutor Dr Tracy Chaplin

Polarzing Light Microscopy Cours for Identification of Pigments under the Microscope in LONDON! The cours is organised by International Academic Projects and our teacher is Tracy Chaplin. We are together with a small international group of seven women.

Colleague Hanna Tempest, Freelance Easel Paintings Conservator shows how to use the Chelsea filter (red transmission). This can be used as a means of distinguishing blue and green pigments. We learned a lot this first day, and start to speak ‘the language of pigments identification’. Never thought I would ever learn a new language the one that talks about the Identification of Pigments under the Microscope!
