Chalk paint/milk paint issue

Skinny1Skinny1 Member Posts: 6 ✭ Mexican Lobby Carder
Hi everyone, 

I am new here. I am restoring a poster from 1912. Its on a very thick cardstock. It is very old and fragile. It has a white paint that is chalky in texture that the background was painted with and then the text in black. When ever you touch the background this white paint rubs off. How can I stop this? Is there something I can spray on the poster to stop the original paints from degrading? Thanks!
