Thank you for this information... I love books a lot...

I do not find a DIY process for removing water stains/tidemarks from this site. Am I not looking in the right place?? I would really appreciate a solution, if possible. Thank you.


Great post. I'm facing some of these issues as well..


Good day! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if that would be okay. I'm definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.


I like the site but you offer no solutions?
Foxing - a definition but no treatment!
Water staining - an illustration but no treatment!
You have knowledge and skill which would be nice to hear.


My site is NOT a DIY site, you will need many years of training in preparing these formulae and executing them. I am only illustrating my work not my methods, conservation is only a small part of what I do which is reserved for commissions only.

This is the most valuable
