Project Details:

Mounting this sketch to an acidic board with protein based adhesives to repair the tears resulted in staining and discolouration. Conservation treatment removed the art from the board and reversed the staining. Followed by lining with Japanese paper to repair the tears, this work of art is preserved and can be enjoyed once again.
