Lining – Japanese paper, pasted out with wheat starch

Lining

This is the first piece of paper to be laid down for the lining. Lining paper has to be both strong and lightweight, so experience is required to choose the right lining paper for each job. A professional conservator can line without causing any stress and can ensure that the lining can be removed in the future without damaging the poster. Typical materials would be a Japanese paper adhered with a wheat starch paste.
