George,
Depending on the specific problems that you are encountering, a
methyl cellulose, such as Dow Chemical's Methyl Cellulose A4C or A15C
(short molecular length) would be useful as a sizing for the paper.
Good Luck,
Bill Minter

cellulose but read that it is sometimes used as sizing. In
construction end sheets with either PVA or wheat paste I have a
problem with adhesive bleeding through handmade decorative paper
and with wrinkling ; could this be solved by sizing with methyl
cellulose.  George Baker
