Rabbit skin glue (coarse powder) is used to create a strong bond between gold leaf and gesso layers. To make a good mixture of rabbit skin glue, follow these instructions:
- Add 100g of rabbit skin glue to 1 litre of water and soak overnight.
- The following day put in a double boiler and heat slowly until all the particles are dissolved.
- Do not overheat, about 50 degree is the best temperature.
- Once all the air bubbles have disappeared, leaving the mixture to cool down and then it is ready to be used.
- After use, put the remaining mixture in a refrigerator to last longer, do not use the mixture after seven days.
Available also in powder: Rabbit Skin Glue in Grains
About Rabbit Skin Glue:
There are substances in animal tissue from which glue can be extracted, particularly in the skin and bones. These can be extracted by boiling. The carrier of these substances is the collagen protein that is available in the animal body as scaffold protein cloth. Through heat action, the water-insoluble collagen changes into the water-soluble gluten protein. The gluten gives the glue its adhesive & bonding strength. This course of events applies to all glues obtained from animal tissue.
