GONIS makes Gonicoll a good glue for this.
if you are going to Denver Harry should have samples to take home & try

  It was discussed in January so should be in the archives somewhere. I
will send the one post I sent and a <snip> from Ellen Silverman

Ellen, you are always soooo funny!

I got a chuckle out of the image of all your stuff drifting off the
cold walls and sticking together in piles as they warm up when the
building heats up in the morning! I can just see your face when you
came into school to that mess!

Any of you all familiar with Gonicoll? I remember it being discussed a
few years ago. It is a great glue made by Gonis, a German Company if
I remember correctly. Harry sells it at Armada Art and has it at his
booth at NAEA
It takes some getting use to but once you get the hang of it it sticks
to anything and can be removed and used again.
It sticks to glass, blocks, paint, wood, cloth, and metal. That covers
all I have successfully stuck it to and later removed it. The trick is
it has to dry on the back of the work before sticking to anything or it
will be permanent.

  What works for me is to put rows of dots on tag or similar strong
paper. I let those dry completely and cut them into little squares. I
stick them to the paper I save from the back of peel off sticky paper.
Then I put a dot of glue on the back of each square and let dry. If I
let then dry thoroughly I can stack all the papers. I can use these
double glue dots over and over again. Test out a few to make sure the
paper you attach the glue to does not separate from the damp glue.
That is fun! All the art work is laying on the floor with one glue dot
and half the paper square while the other glue dot and 1/2 the paper
square are still sticking to the wall!
