S08E02: Testing New Materials

We’re joined by special guest host and material scientist Anna Ploszajski as we try to unpick how conservators approach the materials they use for treating objects: what do we look for and how do we use them? Kloe takes us through her thought process when she tries a new paint range and Jenny encourages people to share their low tech testing. Also tune in for a Dear Jane about whether or not conservators need to be artistic. 01:48 Getting to know your materials 03:50 Are specialisms a myth? 05:55 Trying new things 12:01 How do we find and test new materials? 18:44 Kloe’s experiments with Lascaux Sirius and textiles 44:56 The practical side of testing something new 48:36 Dear Jane 51:53 Patreon shout out Show Notes: - Handmade podcast: https://www.annaploszajski.com/podcast - Oddy testing: http://www.conservation-wiki.com/wiki/Oddy_Test - Accelerated aging tests: https://www.conservation-wiki.com/wiki/Accelerated_aging_test - Lascaux Sirius colours: https://lascaux.ch/en/products/colours/lascaux-sirius-watercolours Support us on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/thecword Hosted by Jenny Mathiasson, Kloe Rumsey, and Anna Ploszajski.

We talk about all sorts of things from the perspective of conservation professionals, from museum trends and new technology to the big issues like pay and staying safe at work. In some museums conservation can be a bit of a naughty word but we think it ought to be celebrated!
