Subject: Shagreen


From: Mark Vine <100436.3447>

This enquiry is placed on behalf of a conservator without access to
the list. He has been given two 20 x 30 inch panels which the
custodian tells him are covered with shagreen (my understanding is
that this is the skin from the underside of a shark).

To complicate matters the shagreen has a water based design on the
outside and the conservator is desperate to find a suitable adhesive
to adhere the shagreen to the panels.

The adhesive needs to be something that would be easily removable
at a later date and that will dry fairly quickly without effecting
the water based design. Suggestions appreciated,
