Modular Cleaning Program in practice

Recently a colleague, Judith Bohan who is an interior conservator, called for help. She is working on a project at Haarlem Station. Here the third class waiting room is to be conserved. I was asked for my expertise on cleaning and removing old yellowed and cracked varnish on the beams. I did tests using my Modular Cleaning Program. In less than two hours we had tested both cleaning and removal and knew what were the best steps to take. We could do a great job, in removing varnish  without damaging the red band. My newest challenge is to calculate how much mixture we need of the products used in The Modular Cleaning Program in practice.

MCP in Practice

 The MCP is een eenvoudig methode om meerdere reinigingsmiddelen in een kort tijd te testen. Hoe vaker je het gebruikt hoe sneller het testen gaat. 

 

Plaats de potjes in de juiste volgorde, zet de mengbekertjes klaar met pipetjes, potlood bij de hand en starten!
