SHAKE it, blast it, it‘s clean
Together with SHAKEINCONSERVATION SHAKEINCONSERVATION, a non-profit organization to connect students and young professionals in conservation in Belgium, Deffner & Johann hosted a two day workshop on soft particle cleaning at the University of Antwerp.
On site in Portland
This summer Deffner & Johann had the wonderful opportunity to visit Robert Gamblin and his wife Catherine in Portland, USA. On a beautiful sunny morning Robert led us through his paint factory, showed and explained the production of the paints - it was "Red Day".
Gamblin's company produces more than 200 colors in an environmentally friendly and safe production process in southeast Portland. Gamblin Artists Colors' paints and Gamsol solvent - an odorless solvent - are all non-toxic and lead-free.
