This is top stuff to see, I am truly impressed Mark.
A few concerns as it was drying...it seemed to develop a streak?? Residue rhat came up after wet work?? I'm not sure what caused this but it has me stumped...Charlie?
Notice the "white streaking" on the blue field...
It does not appear on the other side, which looks good.
600?...oh...back to Lowes...I'll get a razor as well & scrape lightly. Question: if you can't see it from the front to begin with, will it show after backing?
I really never understood why it is called ''European style'', really it is not restoration, at most it is conservation/ preservation, but I am not keen on it either. It ''preserves'' the dirt and mouldy look of the poster.I think that the work you guys do is much better if i may say so - big congrats
Hi Mark, yes, my post was meant more as a ''criticism'' of ''bad'' restoration that some people in Europe call ''European Style''. I too have seen minimal work on posters ''European Style'' that look superb (just bathing and backing). But I have also seen, more often than not, really poor restoration being carried out in Europe where you can see the dirt, mould on the poster - and they charge you a fortune! So apologies, I did not mean to sound negative about that resto that though minimal might enhance the poster, but the poor one which I normally associate with ''European Style''.
