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?

glue stick is fine for me

Rubber cement...brush both the magazine page and the surface you're affixing it and let the cement dry a little... for a more permanent application.

Thanks, Piro...Glue Stick is good for me too but what do you use for an adhesive? (Insert rim shot here). The red light indicates a joke has been told.

Thanks, Jim.

I agree with Jim and he is good on it. :) 

Yes, I think the problem is....he's trying to cover too big a surface for rubber cement.

I use this "Advanced Craft Glue" the company is Beacon.  It dries crystal clear and is fast grabbing and transparent too.    It's called 3-In-1 Advanced Craft Glue by Beacon.  It's in a clear plastic bottle and has 4 oz.  I got mine at Michael's (craft store) and used a coupon on it.  It's around 6.00 a bottle, but you can use either a 40%-50% off coupon, and it doesn't hurt so bad on price then. 



Thanks, Robin. I'll look into this....

I'm a big fan of yes! paste. It comes in a jar and works well painted with a brush. 

YES paste is awesome, you just need to use a disposable brush to get it on the paper.  It sticks perfectly everytime with no ripples.   I love it.

Thank you, Jenn...Do you mean the kind of paste I ate in kindergarten?

i mainly use stickers these days. in the past i used clear acrylic medium.
