Lascaux Medium for Consolidation

From: Aaron Salik <info>
Date: Monday, June 26, 2006
After requests and favorable reviews, we are happy to announce that
we are now stocking the Lascaux Medium for Consolidation.  This
product is a finely dispersed, aqueous dispersion of an acrylic
copolymer, developed in cooperation with the Swedish National
Heritage Board for the consolidation of paint layers in medieval
polychromy on wood.

This medium has excellent penetrating power due to its low
viscosity, allowing for the safe and efficient consolidation of
loose and chalking paint layers, even on water sensitive surfaces
such as gilding or thin layers of distemper. These can be
consolidated without swelling or spotting on wooden or textile
