A low viscosity proteinaceous glue sold as a solution. Liquid glue is prepared animal glue with acetic, nitric, or hydrochloric acids. Acidification decreases the viscosity but does not alter the adhesion of the dried film. Some liquid glues may have additional additives such as clay, chalk, plasticizers, or preservatives.
