Fish glue for priming, painting and gilding
Fish glue is used in the glueing of wood, papers, cardboard and leather. Formulated from fish bones, the glue is natural and flexible with a strong adhesion power. Fish glue is ideal in all creative projects of furniture and woodwork since they are reversible. Glues of animal origin are simple to use, resist ageing and can be softened again by heating, which makes them very useful for repairs. In contrast to synthetic glues, they can be overpainted and pickled. Also suitable as priming for painting and gilding.
