Paintings on glass

From: Mark Vine <vpackthread>
Date: Thursday, August 3, 2006
A painting on glass measuring approximately 1/10th of an inch by 14
by 18 inches has sustained a fracture along its entire width.

The fracture itself has been repaired but the fear is that the
thinness of the glass piece could result in adverse stress on the
repaired bond.

The restorer has asked whether anyone can suggest a suitable
substrate, ideally transparent that might be applied to the whole of
the reverse providing support and reducing any possibility of stress
on the bond.
