3902 Gainsborough LINING COMPOUND 454gm
Gainsborough’s Lining Compound is a museum formulated, pre-mixed wax-resin adhesive used in the traditional method of lining (adhering) an old oil painting to a new canvas. It is reversible by using heat.
Suggested for use in lining when a painting is flaking and shows bare canvas, has cracks that will soon lose paint, has multiple holes or tears, and / or has weak original canvas, which needs a new support. Also used for adhering a linen patch to repair a torn canvas.
Must be melted slowly at low heat (approximately 94°C/200°F/warm setting) in an electric fryer or melting pot. Its qualities are destroyed by overheating. A 1kg / 2lb quantity in the pan helps give temperature stability. Apply melted Lining Compound on back of canvas and use a standard iron (max 135°C, min 66°C) to cause the wax-resin to penetrate into the new canvas to create bonding.
Use Lining Compound Remover, 4560, to remove excess Lining Compound, or Neutralizer, 4559, if a milder product is required.
