Once in our studio, the drawing was carefully tested to see to what degree the blue stains could be removed. As well as testing the stains, the black ink used to create the drawing was tested to check its water solubility and stability. Once we were confident that we could remove most, if not all, of the staining without damaging the artwork, the customer happily agreed to have us move forward with our treatment.
The paper support was treated by applying special cleaning agents to the affected areas, while simultaneously protecting the delicate black ink the artwork was made from. The buckling of the artwork was flattened and the acidic content of the paper was greatly reduced. The restoration treatment was a success as we were able to remove all of the staining and buckling all without compromising the original drawing. Once our customer saw the results of our restoration treatment, she happily agreed to have the drawing properly protected with an archival framing solution.
Custom Picture Framing- A map frame
Our customer liked the idea of having a map of France on a frame, so we created one- of- a- kind frame with the map. A museum mat board was wrapped with conservation grade navy blue fabric. The drawing and two photos were protected with Museum Glass. Museum glass has the highest percentage of UV protection, 99 %. It also virtually eliminates reflections.
