The data presented in this article are related to the measurements in the contribution titled: ‘Tarnished silver-copper surfaces reduction using remote helium plasma at atmospheric pressure studied by means of high-resolution synchrotron x-ray photoelectron microscopy’ published in Corrosion Science. X-ray photoelectron spectra were collected from...
Article
Previous investigations suggested that sulphide layers on pure silver surfaces were easily removed with a reducing plasma afterglow at atmospheric pressure, but were harder to remove on silver-copper alloys. In this study we investigated by synchrotron x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy the effect of plasma afterglow on tarnished pure silver, pure co...
Article
The analysis of iron, manganese and antimony in silicate glass is of great interest in chemistry, materials science, earth sciences and archaeological sciences. Yet, conclusions from different fields appear to be contradictory and many questions about redox reactions in glass remain. The purpose of this study is thus to discuss whether and how thes...
Chapter
A systematic study has been carried out to compare the surface morphology, shell thickness, mechanical properties and binding behavior of melamine formaldehyde microcapsules of 5 to 30 μm diameter size with various amounts of core content by using scanning and transmission electron microscopy including electron tomography, in-situ nanomechanical te...
Article
The chemical composition, nanostructure and electronic structure of nanosized oxide scales naturally formed on the surface of AISI 316L stainless steel microfibres used for strengthening of composite materials have been characterised using a combination of scanning and transmission electron microscopy with energy-dispersive X-ray, electron energy l...
Article
In the restoration-conservation practice of medieval art masterpieces, such as the Holy Lady Shrine from Huy, knowledge about the techniques used to create and shape them is of major importance, especially when they concern the surface finishing treatments. This influences the selection of methods employed for the conservation-restoration process....
Article
In previous papers, we showed that it is possible to modify the colour of gilding on silver substrate by applying a surface chemical treatment after it has been burnished [Crabbé et al., Surf. Interface Anal. (2008) 40 467; Crabbé et al. Applied Physics A, (2013) 111 39]. These types of techniques are recount in many medieval and older manuscripts...

The colour of gildings can be modified by many artistic techniques. This article refers to the possibility of a specific chemical treatment to change the colour of gildings. The model samples-gilded silver plate, the mixture and the application of a medieval recipe based on ancient writings from Theophilius and Cellini have been described. We propo...
Article
A few decades ago, heritage scientists and art historians started to study the ancient surface colouring techniques of metal art pieces. Colouring of copper and silver has already been broadly studied but no works on gold have been reported yet. This knowledge can be very important for art and technology history, conservation-restoration and surfac...
Article
The purpose of this article is to re-examine Theophilus' and Cellini's recipes, to understand what they were used for and to find out whether they could have been used for the Notre-Dame shrine of Huy (Rheno-Mosan art, 13th century). A historical sample (the statuette of St Jacques the Major of the Notre-Dame shrine) was studied with X-ray fluoresc...
