Mini Post No. 4 – How we prepare samples

The nice people over that the Getty Conservation Institute have just released their new newsletter for Spring 2014. It deals with all things plastic and has a great article on the research they carried out on animation cels from old Disney films. You can find a pdf of the newsletter here.

In other news…

The science conservation department of the V&A has the most fantastic collection of cross-sections. These would have been originally used during the analysis of museum objects and are now kept as references for future work. Some of the cross-sections, which are no more than 20mm wide, have 10+ samples in them!
