The "New" Derma-Grip

    I believe it's just re-packaged Romans 555. I've used Derma-Grip for years, and love the original formula. Shame on whoever is marketing it now for thinking they are pulling the wool over our eyes. If I wanted Romans 555, I'd go the Sherwin-Williams and buy it a hell of a lot cheaper than what I'm paying for it possibly being re-labeled as Derma-Grip!

    Is it still ok for DP?

    Yes
     
  4. I wonder is the dry mix still the same.

    I have seen the Romans 555 listed here on this site several times. Is it any good over the hide paste you get at a supply house? At one time I used Buckeye Supreme but I think it was changed a few years. It just didn't seem to do the job as good any longer but maybe that was my imagination? I switched to WASCO dry and mix mine as I need it now.

    Not to hijack the thread, but James Taxidermy Supply carries a glue called Stick It. It is an excellent product that works for tanned or DP. Give it a try.
