    Wax-resin lining treatments in the 20th century were chosen specifically for many of the 19th century Danish Golden Age paintings on canvas to counteract their suspected response to moisture. For this study samples from paintings and lined mock-ups have been examined in order to study this treatment’s response to moisture before and after wax-resin lining using tests of uniaxially restrained samples in cycled RH. Contrary to the usual assumptions the wax-resin lined samples showed increased force at high levels of relative humidity and a decreased response in weft-cut samples at low relative humidity.
