This is a scroll I purchased through an online auction....What a headache for shipping a worthless scroll. I knew the cloths mounting would be bad, because they only took pictures of the painting. The painting has cracks in the paper and wrinkling, but I am going to remake it into something remarkable. I am aiming for that elusive wabi/sabi concept, and may be able to pull it off if I study it deeply. The first thing I will have to do is remove the cloth and take off the back layers of paper on the painting. Then I will put a new layer of paper on it to remove the wrinkles that have settled on the artwork paper. After that I will remount it and try and resell it.
What do you think? REmount
