State Capitol Building Architectural Renderings
The State Preservation Board of Texas sought Carrabba Conservation's expertise in the preservation of historic architectural renderings of the State Capitol building. The sketches, some of which were original plans submitted during the initial construction bidding process, had been housed for many years at the Texas State Archives. All drawings were used during each stage of construction by the builders, and have been continually used for the purpose making repairs to the Capitol. They are still referenced by architectural students today.

 

The enormous line drawings—some over 8 feet long—were executed on sized cloth and paper and had been rolled, referenced, and rerolled; then stored in stacks for over 100 years. The plans became brittle and cracked under the weight of one another and suffered the consequences of heavy use and age in an unprotected environment.


w surface clean.jpgw preserv pencil.jpgPreservation Process
After carefully unrolling each drawing, Carrabba Conservation thoroughly surface cleaned each piece using eraser crumbs and brushes. Folds, rolled areas and stains were humidified using a Preservation Pencil, which produces a delicate mist to relax fibers and release adhesive residues. Solvents were used as needed to remove hard set stains from deteriorated tape.

Tears and cracks were mended and reinforced using conservation quality starch paste and repair tissue.

Archival Storage
After treatment was completed, Carrabba Conservation worked with the State Archives to develop an optimum storage solution. Archival copies were made, and the original large scale plans were individually sealed in Mylar with a thin archival board support and placed in custom-built, fire retardant, powder coated flat files.
