Re: [BKARTS] caution about pre-mixed hide glues



Hi all,
The food gelatin should be gelatin leaves, the white ones. They have no dye
and no sugar. But about hide glues, there are hide and hide glues. Try the
one from Thalas, which is for books, not furniture. Also if someone in this
list has been to Telluride and still remembers the brand, that was the best
one, but I believe it was from Germany.
