Spray mount is horrible, it smells too strong.
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.
Reading this threAd's the 1st time we had ever heard of Yes Paste. After a few days hesitation bcuz of the expense, we invested in a big 2lb 7oz jar. our first test run with Yes will be taken shortly later tonite. like just when the Witchin Hour tolls.
I made the leap for a larger 10oz Yasutomo Nori, great to work with, but longevity is still a concern.
Allison any idea how these hold up over time ? Regular glue sticks appear to lose their adhesion over the years. I'm only talking about 2-5 years, but still for me it's a concern.
No need to send me anything Allison, but if you do know anyone to ask how something sent a while back, I'd love to know.
