Re: [BKARTS] Reducing Question



Hi Daniel,
This is an almost impossible question to answer without knowing the exact composition of both the paper and pigments - various options could destroy the work depending on either of these factors.
I would recommend taking it to a professional paper conservator who can look at the item and tell you what needs doing. The American Institute of conservation or the Canadian Association for the conservation of Cultural property have lists of conervators in various areas. 
Cheers,
Lee

What is the method to chemically reduce (bleach)
irregular foxing that is pervasive in a paper
document, IF, the paper has water soluble pigment
(e.g. ink or watercolor)?  Is there a method at all?

What are your thoughts?  Thank you.

Daniel Winston
