Verdigris in paintings on paper

Copper green or verdigris was commonly used in the illustrations of the handwritten manuscripts and miniature paintings on paper. This colour has a beautiful warm effect, but tends to destroy the paper very fast, specially in humid environment.

We can see in the following pictures, how the paper is almost burnt exactly in the area where verdigris was applied.
