Ink Corrosion Prognosis - Computer Simulation 

Frank Ligterink, Birgit Reissland, Norbert Ligterink and Claire Phan-Tan-Luu (2010)

How will your individual iron-gall ink manuscript or drawing look like in 100 years time? To obtain an individual computer prognosis, you can upload your images of front and back of a single paper sheet with iron gall ink. To obtain a reliable prognosis, you need to specify the artifact's future environment by choosing an ink corrosion scenario (A,B,C or D) and to estimate it's year of creation. 


SORRY! Uploading your own images to create your own ink corrosion prognosis is no longer supported. We are developing an alternative to create your own simulation.
