The transformation of garage to conservation studio is almost complete – a little more paint, putting up shelves and (my favorite) putting things on them, heat, light, alarm….and soon, the Colorado home of Beth Heller Conservation will be ready for action. I can hardly wait!
Camilla Van Vooren recently visited the AAC to do a painting conservation estimate and I felt such longing when she unpacked her bag full of hand tools and solvents. I miss my microspatula. I miss my tiny bone folder that fits my hand just so. I am SO looking forward to washing things, scraping things, flattening things, mending things – all the stuff of paper conservation, book conservation. I am hopeful that January 2010 is blast off. Stay tuned!
