Casein is a powerfully strong milk protein which has been used since the cave artists and Egyptians as a pigment binder and glue. It is fully archival, crystal clear and non-yellowing.
Grain alcohol is distilled from grains naturally. While SpectraFix is not drinkable due to the presence of a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, its vapors are not harmful.
