Re: [BKARTS] Stains & Tears - Washing/Bleaching ... Sizing



Thank you, I will try that next time. I did recently buy an old newspaper
drying rack, which is great for drying text pages and other paper. I do
understand about the lack of space, there is never enough space.

Elizabeth,

I have done little sizing, but when I did it was a dilute, warm gelatine
size, just dipping the pages in following the final de-acidifying wash.
My main problem is doing all this at home as I do not have access to
plenty of bench space!    I imagine any of the normal sizing procedures
consistent with conservation would be equally suitable.
