There are many techniques and methods for the treatment of torn or very physically damaged painting canvases.
Tears are locally mended, thread-by-thread or some other joining technique.
Instead of re-lining (reinforcing an original canvas by adhering a new canvas to the reverse of the painting), we are adding strips around damaged tacking edge of a canvas (Strip lining).
All materials are conservation grade and remain reversible over time
