Rabbit Skin Glue

Available Sizes:         


Art Spectrum® Glue sizing and oil priming are the traditional methods of preparing a canvas for oil painting.

The size is made by dissolving 1 part Rabbit Skin Glue to 13 parts cold water.

Soak overnight or until all the water has been absorbed by the glue.

Heat gently in a double boiler and stir until the glue disolves (do not let the glue boil).

Apply while still warm with a stiff brush.

The size acts as a penetrating liquid to fill pores of the canvas and isolates the fabric from subsequent applications of primer and oil paint preventing canvas rot.
