RE: [medieval-leather] Medireview glue
- Boiled hooves, horn scraps and hide - maybe a little blood. Cook until thick
and the hide has mostly disappeared and the glue is the the thickness of
Elmers carpenter's glue. Use hot. -- the original hot glue. Can be reheated
and the glued parts can be separated. It was reputed to be an unattended
glue pot that caused the great Seattle fire in the early 1900's.
Called hide glue, it is available today in ready made form for making and
repairing musical instruments. Saves all that stinking mess - in more ways
