Sample seals were created using an historic wax seal recipe applied to parchment scraps. The sample seals were then broken to resemble the damage seen on the historic seals. Several types of consolidants were tested,including B-72, PVA, and lvace. The consolidants were rated on the basis of several criteria: reversibility, working properties, change of sheen or color, and adhesion to wax and parchment.
