    Good. Overmounted with acidic window mount which is adhered with masking tape to the verso of the support. Brown scuffed areas are visible in the centre and down the right side. There is a small area which is lifting half way down the right side.

    Treatment details

    The masking tape on the verso was removed using a hairdrier to direct controlled heat onto the tape. The remaining adhesive residue was removed with an eraser. The scuff marks were reduced with a chemical sponge. The lifting area was laid down with dry wheat starch paste and dried under weight.
