Wall painting in Ipanema Rio de Janeiro

Wall painting in Ipanema Rio de Janeiro

The pictorial layer was cracked and dried, characteristic problems of the technique of
oil painting on a mural. The apartment is facing the Ipanema sea and close to a heavy
traffic road, so the panel suffers from both the action of the sea and the gases from the
combustion of the vehicle's engine such as carbon oxides (CO and CO2 ), Sulfur
oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), aromatic hydrocarbons (HA). The dryness of the
pictorial layers denounces a problem of the interaction between the pictorial layers due
to the poor quality of the wall preparation, causing the displacement and loss of parts of
the pictorial layer. The paint varnish was rusty and was removed with special solvents.
The pictural reintegration was made using the tratteggio technique.
