Reason for treatment
Consolidate running crack to stabilise. Wet clean glazed surface.
Heavy surface dirt from storage. Loose running crack on the rim. Areas of glaze loss, most appear to be old as they are ingrained with dirt, there are some small areas which appear to be 'freshish' glaze loss which appear to be a lot lighter in colour than the dark areas.
Surface cleaned using a 50:50 solution of de-ionised water and Industrial methylated spirits (ethanol, methanol) applied with cotton wool swabs, and dried with soft tissues. Consolidated the loose running crack with 5% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in 70:30 Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone): Industrial methylated spirits (ethanol, methanol), applied with a glass micro-pipette. Removed excess adhesive with Acetone applied on a cotton wool swab Reapplied consolidant several times until the crack was stable. Applied 5% Paraloid B72 with a glass micro-pipette to the areas that appeared to be 'freshish' glaze loss, these areas were lighter in colour than the darker older looking glaze loss. Removed excess ahdesive with Acetone applied on a soft brush.
