Subject: Facing materials for mosaics

Facing materials for mosaics

From: Barbara Appelbaum <aandh>
Date: Wednesday, March 4, 1998
I am posting this notice for Kent Severson in Turkey.  Please respond to
the list and also directly to him at KJPSever [at] aol__com:

The problem is a pile of mosaics removed from their original
locations and stored in a building that subsequently suffered from
a fire.  The proposed solution is to work down through the pile one
layer at a time with some kind of sticky facing in an attempt to
reconstruct them. The tesserae are heavy, so the facing needs to be
strong.  Does anyone have any experience with sticky facing
materials?  Kent is curious about various Beva facings or Acryloids
such as C10LV.
