Sand on paper

From: Ute Strehle <ute.strehle>

Has anyone any knowledge or experience in conserving a work that is
"painted" in sand? The work appears to be late 18th early 19th
century with artists initials B. Z. and the size is 460 x 600mm.
Fine grained different coloured sand has been 'adhered' to a paper
support lined onto board. An old label of a London framer is adhered
on the verso. The work has local mould stains and the primary
support cracks in several small areas. Applications of small amounts
of EtOH with gentle brushing of the mould affected areas didn't show
any improvement. Any suggestions regarding technique and possible
treatment will be greatly appreciated.
