I've been meaning to post this for a while now. Referring back to the the
issue of using diff. glues for mounting artwork...I THINK it was Mark Alex.
who introduced the subject months ago. Anyway, I've found a usable tool
this past summer which some of you might not have tried yet. In some ways
it's not perfect but I like it much better than many other
brands/techniques. It's very convenient to carry around in a purse and
quick to use. It's called Rollataq 300 Adhesive Hand-Held Applicator and
you can find it on p. 186 of the SAX catalog '97. The glue which is used is
similar to white school glue and the applicator lays out a thin, smooth,
even layer on the paper. It's usuable on thinner paper like copy
machine/ditto paper. Doesn't seep through or leave "bumps" in the paper.
You don't have to wait for it to heat up or plug in like a waxer. It's
about the size of a med. sized calculator. If you're frustrated with the
other methods, try this.

The negatives....it sets up really quickly and hard to re-position but
possible of you're athletic. You'll miss the rubber cement smell, hee, hee.
If you tend to be spastic, you can wind up with glue all over yourself.
Maybe all of you out there have already discovered this and I'm spinning my
wheels here. Anyway....just a thought..........Cya................
