I´ve start to fix the steam formed veneer. Thickness is 0,9mm i use gelatin as adhesive thats nothing else than cleaned ember glue. The process needs heat so i use fitted aluminium half shells to press the veneer on the base after glueing.
While pressing i warm up the shells for a very short time with a blowtorch.
After 15 minutes the shells could be removed. After 24 hours the glue is hardened.

A lot of work and might be difficult, but the result is fine :D

Never used gelatin as a glue (only in my puddings) but I can't argue with the results. Magnificent!
