I am undertaking a dissertation project to test a range of
sustainable paints for museum use and wish to correspond with anyone
who might be interested in the results. Certainly there are some
types of low VOC paints which will react with certain materials so I
aim to chart the results and make recommendations. I will also be
able to recommend drying times.

Contact me if interested.
