Hello ArtsEdNet folks:

I have a query about rubber cement.

According to all my art education professors and the rubber cement
container label, rubber cement has very dangerous fumes and I shouldn't use
it in the classroom.

However, I've used it in my own studio for years without aknee apairant
damnige t' mi brane, an it allas doesa good job, an it smells soo good,
two!

All kidding aside, I want to do some collages with my 8th graders, and I'm
concerned for their safety. Is the hazard overrated? Is there any safer
alternative which works as well as rubber cement? Seems to me that glue
sticks offer temporary adhesion at best. White glue is messy and puckers
lighter weight papers. Suggestions?
