He’s using acetone, but a cellulose ether has been added to make it into a gel (probably Klucel—this entire gel mixture is sometimes just called Klucel by restorers, but Klucel is specifically the stuff that makes the gel). </p> <p>Normally, acetone is too volatile for restoration, but when it’s a gel, it becomes very stable and a) stays on top of the porous surface of the painting, and b) won’t evaporate. So it can eat up the varnish.</p> <p>It looks scary, but acetone has no effect on oils, and jelly acetone is even less interactive with the surface of the paint or canvas.</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="http://www.rmg.co.uk/see-do/we-recommend/attractions/armada-portrait-elizabeth-i?utm_source=facebook&amp;utm_medium=promoted&amp;utm_campaign=armada&amp;utm_content=30secfilm">They did something similar with the Armada Portrait of Elizabeth I recently</a></p> </blockquote> <p>This is super satisfying.</p>
