That is up to the bookbinder. I think most don't do it. When I was studying bookbinding, I preferred to lightly wax, with a lightest coat of paraffin, then burnish with an agate, to bring up a shine. for the outside papers, and if I felt like breaking my arm further (ha ha...it is hard work, but worth it!) further, the inside sheets too. I would never bother doing it for a whole sheet, but just for the pieces cut to size for the book, just simpler.

Have a query for marblers who also happen to be bookbinders. Used Fabriano & Canson Mi Tientes art papers marbled with Golden acrylics on a carragheenan size for hard-bound book covers. Do the covers need to be sealed, sprayed, waxed or treated in any way? Tried scratching off the marbled pattern & it didn't budge.

Chris- shellac comes in several hues, so the reddish tone can be avoided. But the real problem with shellac is that it s hygroscopic. I d think twice beforeMessage 1 of 5 , May 12, 2012View SourceChris-
