Re: [BKARTS] to sum it up: PVA's

Hmmm. Pure gelatine "hide glue" will start out alkaline, but as it ages
and browns  in the gluepot turns acidic... GLue made from bone is
even worse. Safety pins will rust... Most tap water is acidic as is pure
distilled water.

Yes, let's play it safe. Use only inert materials.
