Re: [BKARTS] Glue and Gelatin



Adding glycerin to the glue after it has been heated should keep the glue
flexible. I heat about 1/4 c glue at a time in a pyrex custard dish set in
rock salt in a small bean pot. What proportion, or how many drops, glycerin
to glue would be sufficient?

> There's a very sound reason to use glue instead of gelatin for the spine
of a book - same as using rabbitskin glue to gesso a canvas and gelatin to
gesso a panel: the glue is far more flexible than the gelatin.
