Glassine can also be used as a release liner, and adhesive tape is usually rendered removable. When used as a protective overlay for paintings, paints must be thoroughly dried or cured paint may adhere to the glassine and damage the surface of the painting. It is not recommended as a wrap for paintings over long periods of time. Made in the USA.
