Mistlining of paintings

Mist-lining of paintings

After testing our mist-lining of paintings we made up our findings. We draw our first conclusions, resulting in lining two paintings using different lining canvas. The first lining we used a fine linen canvas, and the second painting was lined with a thin polyester fibre tissue. Both results were satisfying. Unfortunately it was Maggies (Margaret Barcovik) last day of her internship. She’s gonna take an experience of mistlining of paintings back home. Good luck back home in the USA Maggie!

Experimenting with Mist-lining

Maggie and Marjan were experimenting with mist-lining. They tested an alternative for lining damaged canvases which is called “Mist-lining”. This picture shows our low-pressure vacuum set-up. We tested different types of damaged and prepared textiles (colored strips in the photo) on a variety of lining canvases. Mist-lining is a great option–it was a very interesting and successful experiment!
