I  also believe Dick Hendry still carries out such work privately

Warrington Museum had a lot of good work done by James Dickinson at Lancashire Conservation Studios, you could try them. Similar issues. Although I believe James is going to be off for a few months.

Dear All


Isn’t plastazote interesting in close up!


Whilst a query is underway (as I  can never remember how to post a query), can anyone point me in the direction of conservators/ taxidermists who are good at conserving older mounted fish?  I  have several specimens with a combination of problems - water stains on the interior of the case, ground work mostly collapsed, poor re-painting, poor gap filling and painting over a repair, loose glass, missing side bits of glass from a cased specimen.  The specimen that appears to have been de-cased is also a bit somewhat under-filled.


Suggestions please.
