Adhesives and consolidants have many different applications in the conservation of paintings: for example, the laying down of paint flakes, for lining and the application of temporary facings. These multiple uses demand a range of adhesives with highly varying properties. Over time, and under differing conditions, some materials can present concerns for the conservator including brittleness, yellowing and discolouration, and difficulty in removal.

The papers in this volume, presented at the Institute of Conservation's Paintings Group conference at the National Portrait Gallery, London in 2011, confront some of the problems encountered including: the practical application of materials; reversibility and long-term performance; the properties required of an adhesive and the properties of some materials commonly used as consolidants/adhesives.
