If the cloth is strong and has a tight weave, no backing paper is
necessary. You can roll PVA directly onto the board and iron on the
cloth, or use dry mounting tissue or adhesive. That's what I did for
North American Hand Papermaking 1976, using Fusion 4000 and a Seal dry
mounting press. Fusion has a laminating temperature under 200 degrees
Fahrenheit. You can see it at:

You don't need to use backing paper if you skip the board, as in
Pettigrew's History of Egyptian Mummies (1973), which is at:
