Utrecht Rabbit Skin Glue

For centuries, painters have used rabbit skin glue to protect raw canvas fibers and panels from the disintegrating effects of fatty acids in oil-based colors and grounds. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, New York, Utrecht Rabbit Skin Glue is a top-quality, traditional canvas and panel sizing that exhibits excellent adhesion and barrier properties.

A flexible glue, Utrecht Rabbit Skin Glue dries with relatively little tension, but may swell when humidity increases and shrink when humidity decreases. Please note that over time, fluctuations due to atmospheric changes can cause cracking, but is less of a problem in controlled environments and is considered by some to be part of the charm of traditional oil painting.

Utrecht Rabbit Skin Glue is sold in a 1 lb bag of dried granules, along with complete instructions for preparation and use. One package covers approximately 18 square feet.
