> hello jack,
i pose this question on the list, since more people may be interested in this
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.
