Welcome to dickblick
Acid-free and reversible, wheat starch is one of only two adhesives (along with rice starch) that are acceptable for conservation framing techniques.
Lineco's carefully purified, raw wheat starch makes an outstandingly smooth, archival, museum-quality wheat paste. It's easy to cook up on the stove or in the microwave, in small batches sized according to the needs of your project.

Not my choice for adhering paintings to panels
By Happy Painter
from Dothan, AL
Comments about Lineco Wheat Starch Adhesive:
I bought Lineco Wheat Starch Adhesive to experiment with mounting my egg tempera paintings done on paper onto panels. I also bought Lineco Neutral pH Adhesive at the same time. I really wanted to be happy with the Wheat Starch because I thought it might be the better archival choice, but I was happier with the Neutral pH Adhesive. The wheat paste was easy to mix and apply. It dried a little too fast for me, but then seemed to stay wet too long after the painting was applied in that it caused the birch board to bow. I had to deal with a few air bubbles too. I'm sure this is a great product for other purposes, or in the hands of someone with more practice in its use. It just wasn't what I was looking for and I now use the Lineco Neutral pH Adhesive.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Practice makes perfect
from Atlanta, GA
I chose this product for its ph neutral archival properties as i wanted a reversible solution to paste down a bookplate in a collectable book. I chose the microwave preparation option versus double boiler on the stove. It's a little tricky to obtain the right consistency, but after some experimenting I was successful. It's water soluble, so cleanup is easy. I will continue to use this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
