Re: [BKARTS] How to remove end papers safely? [resend]



This is the method I would use.  Of course, extreme care always!  As you get
nearer the side you wish to save, light sanding helps remove the remaining
cover board.

Hello,
It is certainly possible to remove board from paper, as stated it is  
often accomplished. The rule is to work from the board side removing  
layers while keeping the "keeper" flat as possible.  Sometimes it is  
necessary, and helpful, to use distilled water applied to the board  
with a sponge and a warm iron to help separate and remove parts of  
the board .
It is a standard conservation/restoration technique and used for  
paintings as well as works on paper.
The question is always, "Is it worth the time?"
