More cleaning test fun this afternoon in London. Different picture - potentially very exciting. On the swabs you see overpaint from the 19th Century. There's a new technique available for removing overpaint these days, using special gels rather than traditional solvents. These allow you to go down layer by layer, much more safely than we could do in the past.
