Re: [BKARTS] reversible, archival glues


I'm pretty sure the wheat paste made from wheat starch has no protein. I get starch through a specialty foods source and I'm pretty darn sure it's sold specifically to make no-protein bread for folks how have special dietary needs. And of course, too make paste!

Wheat paste is itself non-archival since it is acidic unless neutralized and buffered with calcium carbonate. It is also protein laden and attracts critters unless you add thymol to it.
