R & F Rabbit Skin Glue
Size: 1 lb
Hide glues have been used since ancient times as a size to prevent the absorption of paint into the support, as a binder of pigment for paint and grounds, and as an adhesive. It comes granulated. Before using, the glue needs to be soaked in water for several hours, then heated in a double boiler. You can combine this glue with our gesso compound for making glue gesso grounds for encaustics. It is the binder for the chalk. Rabbit skin glue is also traditionally used as a size in oil painting so that the oil does not deteriorate the canvas or paper.
