Paper
Works of art on paper face many types of damage and deterioration. Dirt and grime, stains, foxing, holes and tears, creases or folds, and mold can all affect the appearance and longevity of an artwork. Almost all types of damage, however, can be stabilized and repaired, increasing the life of the object.
