Friday 27th May 2011; Surface Treatments and Cleaning Techniques

Week 7 of 12 
Module 5: Conservation Interventions and Treatments; Criteria for Selection and Implementation

David Odgers was with us all day today speaking to us about surface treatment of stone and cleaning techniques. Both of these topics are highly relevant to my work at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust because we are constantly dealing with the problems caused by past inappropriate surface treatments and cleaning techniques and provide advise on methods for the future. In the last session of the day we were presented with a tricky and on-going case study which we discussed in small groups. This was a great opportunity to think through the issues that we have been discussing, from both a materials and a conservation perspective.
