if hans was talking about an oil painting then you should follow his advice -



it looks very inelegant, i know, but because spit is not water, and contains enzymes, but you will find it referred to by many restorers, example:



According to Helmut Ruhemann, noted restorer and author of the book “The Cleaning of Paintings”, another strange system that is however the best and safest way of removing dirt, is to use saliva.

“I wonder how many years it would take to clean Rembrandt’s “Night Watch” says Paul Frederick, in his manual “The Framer’s Answer Book”.

The saliva is collected in a container (don’t hesitate to ask family members and friends) and subsequently spread over the painting either with a brush or some cotton.

The alternative is to spit directly onto the painting and then spread. Probably Ruhemann and Frederick prefer paradox and controversial methods.

Hans, your wishes always a bit strange and you get nervous when people don’t comply. Last time you persistently was trying to convince me to spit on my finger and rub the surface. ;o)

No, Hans was talking about a watercolor. ;o)



As to the restoration method you quoted......I guess I will opt to pass on it as well (in my own practices). ;o)

Whatever that was suppose to mean again, Hans, I just hope you care about it as much as I do.;o)

Hans, I’m not even sure if you see any sense that could connect your bunches of words yourself. Also you edit every your post, your mind is in constant state of change? (Other than on molecular or atomic level.)

Hans, if you could only know how imperfect my English is (it’s the 4th language I learned). And if you could possibly know how much more I’m willing to learn.

However with you – your English is the smallest problem. ;o)

In any case I don’t think there is any reason to continue to talk as I hardly can understand what you are saying and you never had a clue what I was talking about as well.

PS.: I could show you hundreds of signature-pairs of one artist, that are so different, that you would never think of the same artist - they are really ´´very different´´. [;)]

Hans, stop editing your posts already you are beginning to be annoying. Don’t say one thing and then replace it with completely another one especially two days later. Be a man stand behind what you say. Learn to speak for yourself only not as “we” or “everybody”.

As for me if I would ever need any help you will not be ever the one to ask for.

On who’s behalf you are thanking now: author of the topic or the whole forum?

Hans, pinch yourself and realize it’s still only little yourself. ;o)
