TREATMENT OF ROMAN PAINTED WALL PLASTER FROM WALL MUSEUM, STAFFORDSHIRE, 1988.

Author(s): H I Kingsley

Fifty one boxes of Roman painted wall plaster from Wall,Staffordshire, were to be partially cleaned so that any underlying painted surfaces could be seen. All fragments were then to be consolidated. Soil adhering to the surfaces was fully removed from most of the fragments to aid consolidation. The soil was removed with a scalpel under a microscope and then the fragments were consolidated with a 5% solution of Paraloid B72 in toluene. Most of the fragments were found to be decorated.
