"Hi Kanchan. You mentioned about sealing under glass. Here is an interesting book, by Micheal David Brown, (1998). Realistic Collage step by step. Cincinnati, Horth Light Books. ISBN 0-89134-819-0, that uses temporary tacking via the 3M Spray…"

"Thank you all for those tips. Exactly what I need to know in that my older work is starting to come apart.  I use thick epoxy, the kind you knead, which can be formed into any shape, dried and glued or drilled into for screw attachments.…"

"Adding a thought: As I use primarily thin paper as collage source, I started working with 3M positional mounting adhesive. It's a different way of working, and there are benefits to it. FYI"

"I use Mod Podge and have had great success with it. I think that it's basically like Elmers. Just a tip here for all the Assemblage artists... have you tried E600o? It is fantastic. It will glue anything to anything!"

"The stick glue is easy to handle, but it dries a bit too fast for how I'm working right now. It sometimes warps the paper I'm using, as I use a lot of magazine source."

"I've been using Krylon spray adhesive.  I'm working with material too thin for traditional glue. Is anyone else using spray adhesive? Open tack-time is important."
