Preservation of works on paper
This course will cover the most recent advances in mounting and storing works on paper, including robust bonding of hinges with, non-bioactive, methyl cellulose.
It will explain hinges that are designed to minimize stress on the art, while maximizing strength, elsewhere, for the lightest items to the heaviest. The course will include non-hinge supports systems made with folded paper, sheet polyester, and polyester felt, spacers that can provide steady, but non confining support for rigid boards and sinks to safely house all types of paper objects.
The materials, such as of papers, plastics, metals, glasses and combinations made from them, will be detailed along with how each can serve to maximize preservation.
New materials, like Fosshape, Stinger Board, and 2 mil reflective mylar, will be explored, along with emerging materials like clear micro fiber paper.
