Reason for treatment
Clean and secure surface
There wer some delaminated area in paint layer.
The delaminated/loose areas in the paint layer on the front were first consolidated with 1% isinglass in H20, but that was not effective as desired. Therefore, MFC (acrylic dispersion) was applied using a small brush and then the area was weighted. The recto was surface cleaned with a brush and vucuum, then with white spiril to reduce the surface dirt.
