i pose this question on the list, since more people may be interested in this
question/response.
would you explain what context you are thinking of when you say wheat starch
paste "is not very reversible"?
my experience relates only to lifting endsheets a day or two after pastedown,
when i didnt quite like their fit. i remoistened the paste-down and was able
to lift it without difficulty. `
i do blelieve i busted those membranes properly when preparing the paste.
