Tinsel prints at the Ten Chimneys Foundation

While on the subject of tinsel prints (see post of  Dec 19), I came across this 2005 exhibition at the Ten Chimmeys Foundation. Some 30 miles from Milwaukee, this house museum was created by actors Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne as a world-class museum and national resource for theatre, arts, and arts education.

The exhibition website explains how the prints were made and outlines their conservation, a theme which is also expounded by the Folger Shakespeare Library in Conserving tinsel prints of stage characters.
