An interesting approach to remove insoluble animal glue residues
from a fresco is documented in the article "Biotechnology applied to
cultural heritage: biorestoration of frescoes using viable bacterial
cells and enzymes", by Ranalli et al. (Journal of Applied
Microbiology 2005, 98, 73-83), where they used not only the purified
enzymes (protease and collagenase) but also living bacteria
(Pseudomonas stutzeri), which released enzymes into the substrate.

If you cannot get hold of the article you can send me an email
directly and I will send you a PDF of the paper.
