dc.description.abstractThis thesis addresses the problem of how administrators of historic properties should deal with early paint at their property. A history of paint making and application, as well as a discussion of paint color trends in America, what options are available to administrators of historic sites, and the process of paint analysis are included. Case studies are used as examples of different approaches taken at some historic sites. The recommendation is made that all historic sites should conduct thorough paint analysis before any changes are made to paint finishes, and any decorative finishes should be protected for future examination before any repainting is conducted. If a complete paint restoration is not feasible, the historic site should, at the very least, attempt a rehabilitation using historically accurate colors based on paint analysis.
