A TRANSFER TREATMENT TECHNIQUE FOR HINTERGLASMALEREI

Jonathan Thornton


ABSTRACT—This paper describes a method for treating cupped and blind cleavage and carrying out cosmetic compensation on hinterglasmalerei which solves many of the problems encountered with previously reported treatments involving solvent relaxation and/or consolidation with synthetic resins. In the treatment described, the severely damaged paint film is transferred off the glass virtually intact, then cleaned and compensated from the front prior to reattachment with a low viscosity epoxy resin.
