Re: PVA Glue



Hi -- Mix it with Methyl Cellulose to thin it out.

>Hi list.  A pathetically rookie question here. I was able to buy a gallon of
>PVA glue from an industrial supplier and it works great, but the consistency
>is thicker than what I'm used to. I was using a creamy glue that dispensed
>from a squeeze bottle. This stuff is sort of like soft  butter frosting and I
>apply it with a brush. I use it to glue handmade paper to book board. My

>would be to use it in the bottle for that type of application. I also wonder
>whether or not it really gets into the paper fibers when it's so thick.
