Hi all, this is my first post so hopefully you can be of help.
I’m doing a cabinet making college project i intend to wrap the cabinet in real goatskin parchment. The effect i intend to achieve is a check pattern made out of squares or ‘tiles’ cut from the parchment.
The problem is finding information regarding the application of parchment to (in my case MDF 18mm) ie: weather the parchment can be glued down while dry or does it have to soaked first? And in either case what type of glue should i use. Hige glue? Fish glue?
I’d greatly appreciate help with this matter as its almost impossible to find information regarding this.

Regards Andrew

I played around with it last year. See this blog.
I followed instructions from Gene (vipond33) and I don’t recall everything but it has to be wet and you have to use fish glue. I wasn’t using it in the traditional way but it is definitely fun stuff.

If you want me to try to look up the stuff Gene sent me about it, PM me and I’ll have a look.

Good luck.
