Toning with 'paper extract'



‘Paper extract’ is a name for the substance obtained by the evaporation of dixoloured paper washwater. This may seem at first to be an unpromising material, but trials have shown it to be useful to the paper conservator. Several instances are given in which paper extract was used and found helpful as a toning material for pale spots in paper.
