I came across a website several weeks ago on how to make liquid hide. I copied it down but didn’t note which website I took it from. So, whomever you are I thank you in advance.
What you need:
- Hide Granules
These three ingredients are mixed by measure of weight. Follow these steps to mix your own batch.
1oz (28grams) of 192 grams strength Hide granules
.2oz (5.6grams) of Urea
1.5oz (42 grams) of distilled water
Mix the Urea into granules and stir it.
Then pour the distilled water into the mix and give it a quick stir.
Cover it and let it sit overnight. The next day heat it up to 140°F (60°C) for 2 hours.
(I’m not sure why it’s required to use distilled water unless tap water in the U.S. is filthy)
Liquid Hide is now ready to be used. Pour it into a small plastic bottle and when you need it, just heat the bottle with water up to the same temperature written above.
All well said and done, but we’ll see how works out tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted.
Btw, the Issue III of The Lost Scrolls Of HANDWORK magazine is in its final stage. I’m hoping to publish within the next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed
