Workshop Soft Particle Blasting

Soft particle blasting is a gentle dry cleaning method that can be applied to a wide variety of materials such as paper, parchment, wood, varnish, metal, glass,… And it has recently proven itself successful for cleaning plastics!

 

With sponges, erasers and microfibre cloths you often have the problem that you make the surface dull, scratches arise, or polished. You also rub parts of the dirt between the fibres and the fine pores. Particularly for filigree, fragile and brittle objects and materials, blasting with soft particles is very suitable. This technique developed at the school of conservation in Cologne (CICS) is already an established value in various specialisations of conservation-restoration.

 

This one-day workshop will give you a brief introduction to the technique and background. It will also provide an overview of possibilities that are already recognised within the conservation restoration and presents the first results on synthetic materials. In addition, participants can try out the technique on different materials. You are free to bring your own samples to test the cleaning method. Microscopes will be provided so you can study your test results.
