Kind of a crummy picture, but I was so jazzed about using my new Teflon-coated dental tools recently. The photo shows two holes with ribbon coming through, with the other side having a big red wax seal. The wax has seeped through these holes, making it challenging for me to do my job of separating the pages. That's where my gentle pick tool and a magnifying visor come in. #conservationpreservation #paperconservation #documentpreservation #dentaltools #waxseals
