Reason for treatment
Flaking areas to be consolidated
The amphora is very dusty. There are some flakes around the body.
The surface of the amphora was lightly cleaned by brushing and vacuum cleaning. The flakes were consolidated by packing with the mixture of glass microballoons and 30% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone).
