The purpose of this paper is to present a versatile clamping system to apply controlled pressure during the consolidation of objects or when adhering parts into position. Known as shimbari in Japan, this technique uses flexible fiberglass or bamboo sticks braced against a frame to provide clamping pressure. This paper describes readily available eq...

... Areas of delaminating lacquer surface were consolidated with 5-10% w/v Paraloid ® B-72 in xylene, with pressure applied to the surface using the shimbari method ( Fig. 6) (Bainbridge et al., 2015). Xylene was selected as the solvent used for consolidation as it is an efficient solvent for Paraloid ® B-72 and is less likely to swell or blanch the lacquer surface (McSharry et al., 2011). ...
