Reason for treatment
Consolidate where necessary. Neaten mount and paint. Light clean.H
There are lifting paint flakes in several areas together with areas of missing paint flakes. The object requires a light clean and the mount is uneven and dirty.
The surface was given a light clean with Wishab sponge (vulcanized latex,filler) and given a pre-consolidation treatment with 0.5% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in xylene. The paint flakes were consolidated with 0.6% Vinamul 3252 (vinyl acetate,ethylene copolymer) in deionised water following a flood of White Spirit (composition variable - petroleum distillate). The mount was rubeed down with wet and dry paper, filled with fine surface polyfiller and repainted with Rowney's Cryla colours (acrylic)
