Excerpts

Composition for Making Tongues - Modelling the Inside of Animals' Mouths; their Muscles, Legs, Feet etc., and for General Fancy Work. -- Procure 3lbs. white glue, 1 pint raw linseed oil, 1 pound resin. Heat the oil and resin, then add hot glue and stir thoroughly. Thicken with Paris white until the mixture has the proper consistency to mold when warm. This composition soon dries, becomes very hard, and can be colored, or gilded. Fancy decorations of any design can be readily made from molds of plaster or wood, and glued on to shields or cases, thereby saving the expense of carving. The above is my own composition, which I have successfully employed for many years.
Page 173, added by George. "Because it's stunning."
