Facing with cyclododecane

From: Forrest Filler <forrestfiller>

I am interested in employing a protective facing using cyclododecane
to a 1930s era mural (painted directly onto the plaster support),
before its eventual removal from its present location.

The paint layer is extremely sensitive, under-bound, and solubility
testing has indicated it is soluble in most common solvents; facing
with a solvent-based, water-based, or wax-based consolidant will
remove or stain the original paint layer.

What suppliers are recommended? How is it applied, and what are its
working properties? Is there another material that is superior?
