Cleaning prints on Japanese Paper



Hello all,

I am inquiring for a friend who is trying to find a satisfactory technique for
removing
oxidation stains from a turn of the century Japanese silk screened print.

Upon attempting to locally remove the stains with water and heat the japanese
paper turned transparent while the stains remained unchanged.  It appears that
the blue and green inks
are not water soluable but that the red ink is, thus prohibiting total
submersion.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Many thanks,

Pamela
