|The soldier head was cleaned and flakes of paint
were reattached with a stable adhesive.
Treatment: The surface was dry cleaned using a soft brush and a hand -held vacuum. Flaking and tenting paint was consolidated using a 7% solution of Rohm and Hass Acryloid B-72 in acetone. Areas of loss and abrasion to the object were isolated with a 3% solution of Acryloid B-72 in acetone, then filled with DAP vinyl spackling compound and painted with Liquitex acrylic emulsion paint. As requested, the plaster loss on the rim of the hat was toned but not filled.
