Scope note
A seaweed-derived adhesive similar to agar that is traditionally used by Japanese scroll mounters as a consolidant. In Western conservation, Funori is often used as an adhesive for flaking media. It dries into an extremely smooth matte film, which makes it well suited for adhering fills in very thin paper.
