Since its introduction in the twentieth century, poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) has become increasingly popular with artists and designers for its versatility, transparency, and ability to be shaped and colored.
Clear PMMA has been extensively used as an artistic medium to make sculptures and objects and also, since the 1980s, to face-mount photographs. PMMA is known to be prone to surface damages, such as scratches and chips, and this workshop will focus on their treatment.
