So far in this blog series, Prop Store has given you an exclusive look inside Rick Baker’s Cinovation studios and you’ve gotten a glimpse at the broad collection that was housed there. Given the span of Baker’s illustrious career and the number of his creations that he kept throughout it, it should come as no surprise that many of the lots going into the auction required some form of preservation, stabilization or restoration. In this instalment of the Rick Baker blog series, we take a look at some of these pieces and the strides taken to preserve them for posterity.
