Subject: Removing permanent marker from porous stone

Removing permanent marker from porous stone

From: Olaf Pung <pung>
Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2011
I am cleaning a stone sculpture (volcanic tuff) with tags written on
with different permanent markers--solvents only worked with "paint
markers", for the black and red writings I also tried hydrogen
peroxide, without effort. Is it possible to bleach it, e.g. with
sodium hypochlorite, or is the ink pigmented?
