If I want to glue a piece of vellum to a Fibreskyn 2 head as a cosmetic repair, what should I use? Has it ever been done before?

I’d try Duco cement or thin cyanoacrylate.

If I were going to try, I'd use a thin layer of cyanoacrylate. That is the glue I use to patch hide heads. It bonds hide very well.

I think for good bonding, the glue needs to coat the entire surface of the hide - evenly. But be aware, that the glue can discolor the hide. If you apply too much glue, it will soak all the way through and be visible from the top side.

I also think that gluing hide on a mylar (fyberskin) head will change the sound of it quite significantly. I doubt it will sound much like the original fyberskin. Definitely won't sound like hide. But you might like it ...who knows until you try?

Good luck!
