Cautionary Notes about Mounting
1, Check whether the work can be mounted or not.
Thin fabric (not thick)
Poster, calendar or thick Japanese paper
Heavily painted work
Badly damaged work
There are exceptions to the above.
2, Check the Japanese ink, the paint, and thick red ink for signature seals used on a work.
As water is used when mounting, if the appropriate amount of glue is not used, the work will be blurred. We can’t mount a work created with certain tools, such as Japanese pen with a tip like a brush, chemical Japanese ink, or a fiber tipped pen.
3, Measure the work.
The price of mounting varies depending on the size of a work. Please measure the length and width of a work.
We must remove the old backing paper to remount a “kakejiku”(hanging scroll).
Cleaning the work and removing stains
It is impossible to clean a work and remove stains without removing the old backing paper.
A stain may not disappear completely depending on the work.
We may not be able to carry out the operation of removing a stain on a severely damaged work.
