Abstract
Description
To ensure safe handling of this object and to prevent further damage, the lantern slide was sandwiched between two pieces of Vivak and secured together with a toned strip of filmoplast R along the edges. However, before adhering the Filmoplast tape, the edges of the lantern slide were covered with a strip of Mylar to avoid any contact between the object and the adhesive of the Filmoplast R tape. The Vivak was cut to the same dimensions as the lantern slide. The Filmoplast R tape was toned with black acrylic paint. The treated lantern slide was then housed in a PAT tested paper four flap in an envelope.
