Re: fish glue



All you need to do is cook down some fish skin/stomach/lungs, etc.

As you are in Australia, look about for any fish which uses a lung
to stay afloat, get some lungs from fishermen/women, and cook them
down.

However, to make gesso (ala Cenninni) all you need is some food grade
gelatine.  But pay particular attention to his directions for making
gesso sottile.  It takes at least one month.
