Essential for re-gluing or repairing antique furniture, only glue compatible with the original used, enables joints to be taken apart again during future repairs. If you need to break the joint at a later date just heat or steam apart. To make the glue, estimate the amount you will need and pour the pearl beads into the inner container of your glue pot, top up with hot water so that it just covers the beads and allow to soak overnight. Heat the glue and stir frequently and it is ready to use as soon as it is all liquid with no lumps. The optimum consistency should run freely in a continuous string from a raised brush without breaking up into small droplets. Add more hot water to thin or more pearls to thicken.
