Hi everyone,
hope no one minds if I ask for suggestions on which glue I could use to fix some painted panels into a triptych - that won't stain the painting later on.
Usual story, client wants Tryptich, I draw out a model for the woodwork, to give to his freind - advise on what kind of wood for Icons, blah blah.
Client returns with Triptych, already assembled...and in the wrong wood, with fixed frames on. Rolling Eyes
To solve problem I suggest painted panels, which can be inserted as the wood its made from is ...(can't think of polite word) - "unsuitable" for paint or gesso -!
However, I now have to glue the paintings in securely as their church is 12th century with damp problems to match, and I don't want the panels to plip out any time this century.
HEELP!
thank you - any (polite) suggestions are very welcome! Very Happy

Hi Jeanette,

Have a look at this glue http://www.axminster.co.uk/titebond-titebond-ii-premium-wood-glue-prod22583/#bottomsection

If you have a spare scrap of panel of the same thickness, it might be worth checking for absorbency. Sometimes a thin sealer coat of the same glue first allowed to dry will prevent bleeding. Normally though, applied indoors it will go off rapidly before any damage can be done and any excess can be wiped off with a damp cloth if necessary.

Hi Phil,
thanks for this - Smile I need something that grips quickly, so that the curved edges on the daler board won't have a chance to curl - so this sounds like just what I need.
I was thinking of PVA, but thought it too slow in drying.
I want to get it done and back to the client a.s.a.p. as they have messed about on this one since last January - and caused problems that didn't need to happen!
So I will be glad to have it done and dusted.
Jeanette
