Wax crayon drawings

From: Alison Muir <conserve>
Date: Thursday, February 23, 1995
Has anyone any information or experience with the treatment of wax crayon
drawings? I am advising on the conservation of a large (55" x 45") cartoon
by William Conor, 1931, wax crayon on paper, on canvas on a stretcher, upon
which are large areas where the wax crayon is shrinking, cupping, cracking
and flaking. There is also fine mould on the surface.
I have found one sentence in the AIC Paper Conservation Catalogue and no
entry for wax crayons in IPCs Library Guide.
