I’m doing a little make work project in the shop while some veneer I recently dyed dries completely. It involves a repetition of diamond shaped lozenges with a flower in each. I made forty-eight from packets of twelve layers and the project requires all forty-eight.
Perhaps you can understand my disappointment when I went out to the shop this morning and discovered that one of the lozenges was glued in upside down and fully cured.
I will let the pictures tell the tale but suffice to say that I was able to salvage and reuse the lozenge thanks to the wonders of hide glue :-)
What’s wrong with this picture?
Heat, water and a knife.
Reinforcing paper removed.
Lifting the petals ….
...and the background.
All the parts removed intact.
Re-assembled and ready to use ….. right side up this time!
You just can’t do this with any other glue. You gotta love it.
Thanks for looking in,
