Kelson Formula Head Cement

Here is another “Authentic” material from our Friend Bill Bailey. This is the head cement described by George M Kelson and considered to be the ultimate head cement of the period. Bill has used the Egyptian Asphalt thinned with Spirits of Gum Turpentine in the proper ratio to give us the same deep incredibly shiny substance the old masters used on their flies.

Both the Head Cement and Thinner are in 1 oz Glass Bottles with Poly Seal Caps. Unfortunately neither product can be shipped via Airmail due to their flammable contents, they must be shipped via ground transportation. That also means I can’t send either overseas.

We no longer sell the thinner as it is not appropriate to send throught the mail, But you can find the thinner at any art store.

    Great product! This head cement is fairly easy to apply, and gives the head a beautiful, glossy finish. Additionally, in contrast to most head cements, which have a strong chemical smell, this head cement has a pleasant pine-like aroma.
