Old Kakejiku or wallscroll Remount Work

Besides orders for new scrolls I am working on an order for a remount. This painting is on paper, and there was no Ten and Chi. Also there were small sections with yogore and one slight tear. Last night I spent a good while carefully removing the Sou and Hada Urauchi. The Hada urauchi is the first paper used to back the painting and cloth. The Sou urauchi is the layer of paper used to seal all the assembled pieces together. I will keep everyone apprised of some of the steps to the finish.
