Paste Mix Ingredients

Binding Paste Mix

Of Course Lion Source sells binding and pasting mixes here.

Following a traditional recipe that has been time tested for centuries, this is a mix that will make a paste still used by book binders. Acid-free and archival quality, this paste will keep your paper ties nice and tight without deteriorating or affecting the paper layers it comes into contact with.

There are only two ingredients to keep things simple, a base and an astringent to tighten up the paper as it dries. Both are premeasured and kept separate with easy instructions to make a good sticky paste.

Cups of Paste

Each set contains enough ingredients to make about a cup of paste which is more than enough for all but the most extensive repair jobs. To build an entire head typically takes about 3 or 4 cups.

Mix only as much as you'll need at one time as unused wet paste can still spoil in a week or two even when properly stored.

Binding Paste Mix: $3 per set
