Restoration

Milky Blue has over 15 years’ experience in the art field. We restore art objects and sculptures for museums, art galleries, artists and private collectors.

In 2014, the company was granted a certification by the chamber of crafts and trade (Chambre des Métiers et de l’Artisanat). Our contributors hold a state-registered diploma in synthetic material sculptures and master the reproduction and casting techniques of traditional art.

We are also used to working with contemporary materials related to the current implementation techniques (digital cutting, 3D printing).
