    Thanks, Matt! Appreciate it!

    Ok, had the pleasure of working on this Australian Daybill this morning. The area of concern for the poster was the dirt that was embedded in the paper both front and back. 

    Upper left corner showing dirt/grime, and thinning to the paper from pressure/wear. 


    Up first on the wash table some soap to hopefully clean off some of the dirt/grim before the 20+ mins deacidification soak.
    -Ready to get wet and soapy!

    Little soap to clean off the surface dirt/grim.

    Poster has undergone a deacidfiication, bleaching, and another deacidification bath before it's ready to be laid down on the masa paper. 
    Drying before the wheat paste glue. I let it dry about 15 mins give or take prior to applying the paste. 

    The 60+ min wash took a little bit of a toll on the thin and weak paper in the upper left portion. A small piece broke free----to be addressed in the restoration phase. 

    On the masa paper with the mylar still on top, almost ready to use a small towel to help the poster with it's glue adhere to the masa paper, no more brayer!

    Poster has been backed successfully! It's now starting to dry. Will post more pics later-after drying for 3-4 days, the resto phase will begin! That's where the real fun begins!
