Maggie and Marjan tested an alternative for lining damaged canvases 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!
Maggie Barkovic is preparing canvas for strip lining. When canvas ages, gets damaged, and/or becomes brittle, it may require a support of new canvas. This type of damage and aging usually occurs on the sides of the painting (the tacking margins) where the canvas is nailed or stapled to the frame. The tension of the canvas is the most along the edges. And fore most in the corners.
Strips of new canvas must be measured and cut to cover the previous damage. The strips are prepared with a thermoplastic polymer adhesive. Maggie experimented with Lascaux, Plextol, and Mowilith and decided on Plextol. After the strips are prepared, they are applied to the backside of the original canvas with an iron. A nice example of striplinging on a canvas painting.
Besides the cold attached adhesive we have the option for a warm attaced adhesive. Our choises are always led by the possibilities the painting has. And of course in perspective of the whole treatment.
