I went to see an exhibition of wartime art in York over Easter and amoung the collection were a number of paintings framed behind museum glass. Intrestingly the spacer used between the artwork and the glass appeard to be made of hardboard, it had that familiar printed texture visible if you looked closely. Not a very conservation mided method or is there another product on the market with a similar look?

I approached (gently) a Charity Trust that looks after a country house, when the previous day or two on a visit, I saw watercolours in window recesses, lovingly tickled by sunshine and almost every mount had that 1970/80's gingery red bevel.Roboframer wrote:Maybe they have a conservator/restorer that likes to make sure s/he'll have something to do in years to come.
The email reply said that a paper conservator had been working at the Trust for 20 years and they were sure it was all fine and dandy.
