Subject: Removing felt-tip pen ink from wood

Removing felt-tip pen ink from wood

From: Lisa Sertic <lisamirjana<-a>

Last year two green wood Nigerian figures at the Horniman Museum were
vandalized with felt-tip marker. I am currently working on developing
a testing program to determine the best way to remove the stains. Has
anyone dealt with a similar problem? I am eager to hear any
suggestions so that I might test them.
