Abstract

The paper presents a technique for handling and transportation of stone sculptures damaged by salt crystallization. A limestone sculpture from the Cathedral of St. Lawrence in Trogir was studied and pre-consolidated with cyclododecane. First, test were performed in the lab. On 5 glass slides were applied powder of the Seget stone and then consolidated with 50% solution of CCD in Shellsol T, 50% solution of CCD in white spirit, 50% solution of CCD in toluene, with holt melted CCD and hot melted CCD with cotton gauze. After the tests were performed, a technique of pre-consolidation with melted cyclododecane and facing tissue was used in situ on the sculpture. Practical uses of the technique were considered in the paper.
