Hello there im looking for some advice on preserving my fossils from the Oxford Clay with a Consolidant . They are mostly vertabra / rib / phalanges / and various other bones from plesiosaurs / pliosaurs / cryptoclidus / Ichthyosaurus. Heres just a few for an example.
Thank You very much

if you don't have any joy here then try posting on the NatSCA forum
Thank You for the link Holly . After doing some research ive decided to use the compound Paraloid B72 mixed with Acetone.Should give me the results im looking for .
Anymore Suggestions from anyone welcome
Very good choice - it's about the most reversible coating you can use. The only problem is that if you have too high a concentration of paraloid in the solution it can make your fossils shiny but if that happens you can remove it with acetone.
