I enjoy making ancient weapons, bows and arrows, slings, atlatls and anything else I'm curious about. One of the materials I have used is hide glue and I'm very impressed with it's qualities especially when combined with dried tendon. I have only used hide glue that I bought and while that was a great introduction to this wonderful stuff I want to learn how to make my own and to expand my knowledge about which hide glues fit which jobs. I want to try laminating wood with hide glue in the future as well as making a special decorative plaster mimicking marble (called scagliola) which uses "animal glue". So any knowledge sharing will be enthusiastically accepted.
