      Hej Susanne,

      Du har helt ret! Det er ikke Gustavmarmor, men agatmarmor?

      Thanks, you are right. It is not Gustavmarmor, but "Agatmarmor"? It is
      also a thin and shiny paper, and treated in the same way as "Gustavmarmor".

      The animal glue we used was in plasticpackages to keep the glue soft and
      avoid the glue to harden. Use it fresh in waterbath or gluepot. The
      temperature must not goes over 60 degree Celsius.

      Kind regards

      Søren Ibsen
