Museum Putty

Museum Putty is a neutral, opaque blended rubber used by museum professionals and antique dealers as insurance against costly damage or loss. Its beige color makes it excellent for securing opaque (as opposed to clear) items such as porcelain, plates, statues, vases, pottery, figurines, antiques, and collectibles. Removable, reusable, non-toxic, and suitable for use on wood, each packet contains enough material for 40 or more items. Households with children or cats, and those who live in areas prone to earthquakes will find Museum Putty particularly helpful. It also simplifies dusting around delicate or fragile collectibles and is highly recommended for maintaining order on boats and in RVs. To secure transparent items such as glass and crystal, try our Clear Museum Gel. See more product details below.

Keep framed art/pictures level! Love this product! Another use for museum putty - use a small piece on the bottom of each side of your framed art/picture to keep the picture in place and level - even after dusting, your frame will stay in place and you don't have to adjust it again! March 30, 2014
It works wonders I hd a kitten & they love to climb & broke a few good pcs so I went online & I hv been using it ever since : ) March 29, 2014
Favorite product in color!!!!! The Museum Putty is a tinted version of Museum Gel which is clear. The Museum Gel is a great decorating aid, holding items in place securely while being invisible. It is my favorite way to hold crystal candleholders In place on a glass table top. The uses are endless and now with a tinted version I can secure more items in place!!!l March 19, 2014

I have a very old ceramic tea pot, Looks like a Genie would come out of it.
I used it for a long time until I noticed the handle had been glued on. The only reason I noticed is, I had the handle in one hand and the rest of the teapot in the other, It's a hallow handle & the Hot water goes through it. It has never leaked and I have been trying to find out what was used on it. No one seems to know. Thanks.

Staff Answer
Our museum putty is non-toxic and can be used on porcelain, plates, statues, vases, pottery, figurines, antiques, and collectibles. We do not recommend you use the museum putty on the teapot to repair because the handle on your teapot has Hot water that runs through. In this case it may cause the putty to dry, harden and crack and that could cause further damage.

To use, take a small amount of putty and roll into balls or strips. Apply several to the bottom of the object, then gently press the object down on the display surface.
