: Can anyone advise the best technique and solvent for removing residue left by old masking tape? Thanks for your help. K Madsen
Thanks, John! I have a Shiro Kasamatsu 1960 print (modern, heavy paper) with 2" x 1/4" area of masking tape residue at both top and bottom (the deckled edges). This residue is crystaline, not sticky. Can I safely leave it and go ahead with conservation matting? Will it degrade the paper if I leave it? Should I trim it off? Thanks for your advice!
