The unsupported edge during and after treatment.

 This large cast paper work of art is inherently unstable had little structure to support beyond two horizontal wooden members. The result was extensive tears and planer deformations throughout the art work. It was humidified overall, the tears were mended and the outer edges were backed. A solid support was custom made for the art work.
