Fragment of plaster wall.
- Found/Acquired: Egypt
28 April 1999
Clean, neaten fillings where necessary and retouch.H
The fragment has several old repairs to breaks which have been filled and crudely retouched. The surrounding mount has been painted a muddy brown to tone in with the object. There is a dirt layer and a varnish is apparent on the surface particularly to the lower half.
The fragment was cleaned with saliva and cotton wool swabs. The paint on the mount was removed with deionised water. The old fills were improved to a degree without total removal due to lack of time. The surface pitting along these lines were filled with Microballoons (silica or phenolic resin) in 20% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) The final retouching was done with Rowney's Cryla colours (acrylic). The mount was filled with polyfilla and painted with Rowney's Cryla colours (acrylic)
