Stabilizing the mural surface

Conservators discovered large areas of flaking paint on Fall of Gog and Magog and Messianic Era. They stabilized these areas by applying a synthetic adhesive behind the loose paint with small brushes. The paint flakes were then reattached to the mural surface with a small heating spatula, designed for this purpose.
