A friend asks: What's the best adhesive for magazine collage that won't wrinkle the paper? I told him Spray Mount...anybody have any other suggestions?

Spray mount is horrible, it smells too strong.

I prefer:

Glue sticks

YES! paste stickflat glue bookbinding adhesive

Rubber cement which is also smelly but not a spray at least.

Archival is better. Use clear acrylic gell medium for both the glue and finish to protect it afterwards. It is waterproof once it is dry. As a professional artist it is all I use or need for collage.

I've just used Yasutomo Nori for the first time and despite having reservations about the price, I liked working with it. I bought a small  1.84 oz (55 g) container  to try it out and I'm now a fan, obviously have no idea about longevity.
