Can I use this on the back of an oil primed and painted linen canvas to mount on a board for framing?

Asked by: Creativespirit
No, this product is not appropriate for that project. I would suggest that you search the internet for an archival solution. You might also consider restretching the canvas instead of attempting to mount it. Rabbit Skin Glue is used to size canvas or linen before oil painting in order to coat and protect the fibers from deterioration caused by the oxidation of linseed oil that would otherwise penetrate the fibers. Rabbit Skin Glue will tighten the fabric as well as make it stiff. Please see Rabbit Skin Glue Conservation scientists caution painters that rabbit skin glue absorbs atmospheric moisture on damp days and swells, gives off moisture on dry days and shrinks. This movement of the size layer can cause aged oil paintings to crack according to the Smithsonian Conservation Lab.
