Goldbeaters skin is a thin transparent membrane with great tensile strength which was traditionally used as an interleaf for the manufacture of gold leaf.
Used for the conservation of parchment and strengthening to books, this natural material is not readily available, however we have located a reliable supplier who knows the special requirements of conservators and bookbinders. Also used in miniature conservation to reseal coverglass to backing card.
Outside of preservation, Goldbeaters Skin is used to seal the reeds in an oboe.
