Re: Illumination Pigments



I found some wonderful information on The Socety for Creative Anachronsims's  site last year  (Just search in Yahoo, Alta Vista or Excite)  but I
had also saved the page by a miracle and here is the URL:
http://www.geocities.com/CollegePark/Library/2036/page1.html
I checked and the link still works.

Try also http://www.geocities.com/CollegePark/Library/2036/artcl.htm

See the articles compled by Elyse Boucher on the chemistry of old paints and pigments.
By the description you  could have an iron compound in which case try a little lime water or soda water in an inconspicuous place, using a fine
brush.

If its copper based you will have more trouble.  Talk to a conservator who knows chemistry.
