Positionable Mounting Adhesive


My friend Cynthia gave me this brand new box of Scotch positionable Mounting Adhesive.  I can't wait to try it out.  I have been a straight glue (PVA) girl for years but now it is time to branch out.  My bet is that this will work well with my New Yorker Journals because the paper is thin and delicate.  

The film is positionable until you put pressure on it and burst the adhesive bubbles.  Keith Smith talks about it in his "Non-Adhesive Binding: Quick Leather Bindings" book.  He offers some detailed advice on how to use it.  Stay tuned and I will let you know how my first experiment with the adhesive goes!
