adhesive removal: scotch tape (UVA WWI posters)

scotch tape is a pressure sensitive adhesive on a plastic carrier.  it can be removed by using a hot air pencil (developed for the computer industry to make computer chips) to soften the adhesive
the evil scotch tape
the magic tools: hot air pencil and micro spatula
1) removal - you can't see the hot air pencil
pointing at the microspat.  it's there.  it's helping.
2) plastic carrier removed!  adhesive... still there
3) vinyl eraser to the rescue again
everything off!  the paper is still discolored,
but that's the price of scotch tape.
