As a student of Master 2 Conservation-Restoration at ENSAV La Cambre
in Belgium, I am writing to ask your participation in a survey I am
currently carrying out.  My final year essay is on the consolidation
of flaking acrylic emulsion paintings on canvas (as well as paper
and cardboard).  The purpose of the studying is to identify the
different sorts of adhesives required for treatment.  A few of those
have already been counted: sturgeon glue, gelatin, Beva, Plextol
B500.  I will select those adhesives most cited in the questionnaire
and study their advantages and limitations, and their interactions
with acrylic emulsion paints.

I will really appreciate if you can take a moment to answer my
questions.  I will naturally be available for any suggestion,
comment or critical opinion. Thank you a lot for your attention and
your time,

Survey closes 1 July 2014


    Did you already encounter rising/flaking of acrylic emulsion
    paintings on canvas? If yes, what where the causes of that

    Which adhesive(s) did you use for the treatment of it and why
    did you choose them?  Did you use a runny or semi-dry adhesive
    for that operation?  What type of pressure did you applied on
    the painting to enhance scale adherence (use of sandbag, silicon
    brush, vacuum desk, etc.).

    How did you proceed in cleaning of adhesive residues?

    How did you consider or plan reversibility/removability?
