Hi Ann,

I have been told by our supply people that Duco Cement is no longer being
manufactured.  I haven't found a replacement yet.  If some one in Netland
knows of an acetone based product like it I would like to know.  I dilute
Duco with acetone and paint our skull (pig) collection to preserve them.
If there is another type of product that is used for that purpose, please
let me know.
