We are passionate about preserving our Australian heritage!

Lancaster Painters Australia offer painting methods that are reproduced using the same paint methods and materials employed after which painting methods began to dominate the industry. Our work is based on exhaustive and continuous research into methods, materials, techniques and styles. Each job is individually hand-painted by skilled artisans without compromises in quality, historical accuracy or consistency. Working from original paint scrapings, using techniques such as spectroscopy, micro analysis or mechanical methods, and by understanding documentary evidence, Lancaster Painters Australia have successfully reproduced paint finishes, artwork and designs and accurately reproduced the style, character and look of the original period look.
