Mark.....My students have had good luck with glue sticks for adhering light
weight papers. They use the sticks up quickly, which is a drawback. White
glue is cheaper. Another alternative, if you can get one, is a wax roller,
such as used in graphic design. You heat it up, roll a thin layer of wax on
the back side of the paper and then rub it down. It can be re-positioned,
too. I've still got some examples of my own work (former
days), and the paper is still stuck to the backing very securely after many
years. If you look through your art catalogs, you can find these rollers.
Sorry, I don't have my catalogs here to give you more info. The upfront
cost would be 50-70 dollars, but the rollers last a long time and the wax
is not very expensive.
