Recently a colleague, Judith Bohan who is an interior conservator, called for help. She is working on a project at Haarlem Station. Here the third class waiting room is to be conserved. I was asked for my expertise on cleaning and removing old yellowed and cracked varnish on the beams. I did tests using my Modular Cleaning Programme. In less than two hours we had tested both cleaning and removal and knew what were the best steps to take. We could do a great job, in removing varnish without damaging the red band. My newest challenge is to calculate how much mixture we need.
