Cautionary Notes about Mounting
1, Check whether the work can be mounted or not.
Japanese paper, silk, thin fabric (not thick)
Machine-made paper, poster, calendar, or thick Japanese paper, needlework, 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.
NB: If proper amount of animal glue is not contained in ink, pigments, colour and red ink for signature seal, they will bleed during mounting procedure due to use of water. We can’t mount a work that is created with certain tools, such as Japanese pen with a tip like a brush, chemical Japanese ink, or a fiber tipped pen because they do not contain enough animal glue.
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.
