Abstract The presented study focuses on evaluating the efficiency of a gelatin-based product that incorporates a plasticizer (glycerol) and a biocide (citronella oil), proposed as an eco-friendly adhesive for polychrome decoration applied in different parts of the architectural complex of the Longshan Temple in Lukang (eighteenth century, Taiwan). Seven laboratory physico-chemical tests were performed: (a) viscosity measurement; (b) drying curves; (c) moisture content determination; (d) water…
