Make Liquid Rosin for hurdy gurdy

Recipe for Liquid Rosin

If you want to try liquid rosin for your hurdy gurdy here’s the guide to make your own, let’s see a list of tools and ingredients we need.


  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Violin Rosin
  • Plastic Drop bottle


  • Some paper towels
  • a teaspoon
  • a hammer

Step 1

Take your block of rosin, wrap in paper and smash it with the hammer, now we have powder rosin and that’s what we will need to mix with the alcohol

Step 2

Take the spoon and put some of the powder (around 2 full spoons) inside the drop bottle, mix with the alcohol and wait some hours until the rosin is totally melted

Step 3

Check the mix on your gurdy, apply two or three drops on a rag and put it on your wheel, if you find the mix is not sticky enough you have to correct your mix by adding more rosin powder to the mix.

Enjoy your Liquid Rosin ! 😄
