Coming Unstuck: Hirayama Studio conservators discuss paste and paste-making with Dr Vincent Daniels

We are pleased to announce a special panel discussion session between Dr Vincent Daniels and conservators from the British Museum’s Hirayama Studio, to take place in the last slot of Session 2 at 16.30 – 17.00. The discussion will focus upon different methods of paste and paste-making in Eastern and Western studios, but we would also like to invite attendees to submit their questions on all matters relating to paste. How do we discuss different paste qualities, or quantify how thin a paste used for lining should be? Is wheat starch paste truly reversible? How much does cooking time, or vigorousness of stirring affect the end result? Are there other starches we could be using more in conservation?

Please submit your question below, or topic that you would like to hear discussed!
