Sammanfattning

Different textile conservators tend to favour different techniques, mostly according to personal preferences or habit, since there are few empirical studies of the methods’ properties. This study investigated how three methods, using different stitching techniques and supporting layers, uphold the maximum force at break of silk samples. The samples were artificially aged, damaged either by cutting a slit to mimic a tear or by abrasion to simulate wear and then subjected to conservation. The methods studied were: securing the damage to a support fabric with laid couching stitches; securing the damage to a support fabric with spaced brick couching; and covering the damage with silk crepeline attached with running stitches. The tensile properties of the surrogates were evaluated after cumulative treatments: conservation, accelerated wear and finally conservation removal. The results show that after conservation, laid couching made both surrogates with tear and with abrasion the strongest though brick couching made surrogates with tear almost as strong. After accelerated wear, the surrogates with tear and laid couching as well as with brick couching were still stronger than the ones with crepeline. After the conservation was removed, however, crepeline in objects with abrasion gave the strongest surrogates of the methods. Laid couching took the longest time to execute and brick couching the shortest. Knowing the properties of different techniques should help in choosing the method that best suits the unique circumstances of each object; for instance, crepeline could be the method of choice when treating much degraded, fragile silk.
