Re: [mountmaking-forum] RE: safe adhesive for volara Yes, I use the 3M TAPE ROLL, not a spray adhesive, with no substrate... it should be 465. Comes in various widths... and maybe 1/128 inch in thickness... it's just an adhesive with no plactic or substrate of any kind.

  • Greetings all! Tomorrow is my last day at the museum and then I'm out in the void! I've seen some photos floating around of oddly shaped fire brick forms for supporting weird or irregular brazing setups. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Not sure what to search for so I can't seem to find them. Any leads would be sweet. Here's a snap shot of similar forms...
  • For an upcoming exhibit, we need to include wigs on some archival Dorfman mannequins. I've tried to find nylon wigs that would be more likely to pass an Oddy test, but I haven't had any luck yet. Does anyone have a source for wigs that have either passed or might pass? I've considered making more of a sculpted hair and face combination, but I might not have enough time for that. Thanks, Ann Ann Prazer Mount Shop Supervisor The Field Museum 1400 S. Lake Shore Dr. Chicago, IL 60625
  • Hello everyone, Do you have a wood sealant product you would recommend for an exhibition case? The idea is to have a wall with wood shelves imitating a warehouse from the 1920's. The shelves and objects will have an acrylic top so it will be more or less sealed for several months. Because the exhibition designer doesn't want to use Marvelseal/fabric to cover the shelves (he wants the actual wood showing) we were wondering what products are recommended to seal the wood as best as possible to avoid off-gassing. Thank you! Silvia Manrique The Wolfsonian-FIU
