Re: [BKARTS] Gluing large sheets to board



I use a squeegee--either a plastic clay tool or one cut from 4-ply matboard. If you cut one from matboard, make sure the edge is very straight and switch to a new one as soon as the edge becomes soft. I put several sheets of wax paper under the paper or board I'm glueing. That way, as soon as the glue goes off the edge, you can just pull that layer of wax paper out and toss it--you'll have a new clean surface underneath without having to reposition your paper or board.

Hi,

I am seeking tips for gluing large sheets of paper (19x 25") to book
board... how to avoid wrinkles and bumps, curling, etc. Is this a
good time to mix wheat paste and PVA?

Any tips most appreciated.

Thanks,
Andie Thrams
