LEAF CASTING ON THE SUCTION TABLE

Robert Futernick



6 CONCLUSION

THE LEAF CASTING TECHNIQUE offers a quick and viable alternative to traditional repair techniques. Conducting this kind of procedure on a common suction table increases both the number of artifacts that can be treated and the number of laboratories capable of doing the work. The use of transparent suction tables and silk-screens designed to impart texture to the castings provide further refinement now available to the conservator.
