After testing we made up our findings and conclusions, resulting in lining two paintings using different lining canvas. The first lining we used a fine linen canvas, and the second painting was lined with a thin polyester fibre tissue. Both results were satisfying. Unfortunately it was Maggie (Margaret Barcovic) last day of her internship. Good luck back home in the USA Maggie!

Maggie and Marjan tested an alternative for lining damaged canvases called "Mist-lining". This picture shows our low-pressure vacuum set-up. We tested different types of damaged and prepared textiles (colored strips in the photo) on a variety of lining canvases. Mist-lining is a great option--it was a very interesting and successful experiment!

Maggie and Marjan spend a very good day on this symposium organised by Stichting Restauratie Atelier Limburg. Kate Seymour gave a splendid lecture on fillings. The SRAL developed a very flexible and user’s friendly filling using BEVA. During lunch, networking and sunshine was a fruitful combination.
