Please join paper conservator Madalyn P. Meehan in an adhesive workshop on Japanese wheat starch paste. Japanese wheat starch paste is an adhesive with a long history, dynamic uses, and excellent aging properties. Typically used with paper, WSP is a water-based adhesive that is made by cooking the adhesive. Once cooled, it can be diluted to various consistencies and strengths.
