« Part 5: Vacuum bag and Old Brown Glue - liquid hide glue Part 6 of Hide Glue series Part 7: Veneering columns with Liquid Hide Glue »

Here is the new installment on our videos on Hide Glue.

Many have asked us how they could save there Hot Hide Glue when they are not using it. Not like Old Brown Glue, Hot Hide Glue will rot in days if not cooked or frozen. It is not advised to freeze the all glue pot, so we usually dry the glue if we have to much

In this case, we had taught classes for 2 weeks at the American School of French Marquetry and had 2 glue pots on the hot plates. The class finished, we were back at the workshop use only of the Hot Hide Glue, and we use it less than ten years ago as we use more Liquid Hide Glue nowadays.

We did this video while we were saving our glue and I am sharing it with you now

Hope you enjoy!

And as usual if you have any questions regarding Hide Glue, we will be pleased to answer to you in video!

These are a great resource for anyone contemplating using HHG.
But be careful, you won’t ever go back to PVA.

Thanks Patrice

I never knew you could dry out hot hide glue like that for long term storage. Thanks for the info and great video…I especially like the bonus features at the end….French Directors…. ha!

Hi Patrice,
When I closed up my Az shop last week I had most of a pot full of HHG so rather than dump it, I took your advice.
I used a heavy garbage bag and the creases in it actually divided the glue into four easily separated pieces.

Thanks for the idea.
