Need advice - archival adhesive that won't bleed?
Not sure how to explain this, but I have these drawings that are made of lots of little drawings on many pieces of paper. Like a puzzle--when all the pieces of paper are put together, you have the image.
What I did not forsee was the obvious--each individual piece is totally curled up; won't stay flat. I wanted to put these all together and mount them on a board for framing. Normally, for something collage-like, I would use acrylic medium as an adhesive. Unfortunately this won't work, because I tested it out, and anything wet, like acrylic medium or glue, bleeds through to the front. With all this white paper, the adhesive bleeding through won't work.
Wasn't sure where to post this, since it's actually a drawing. But since it's a drawing made of many pieces (of curled paper), I figured it was sort of like a collage, and that this might be the place to ask.
A reputable frame shop recommended that I use a spray adhesive, and insisted that it wouldn't bleed through. However, I just don't know if I trust spray adhesive. Even if there's an archival brand.....that stuff just doesn't seem reliable.
Anyway, any ideas would be most appreciated! Thanks.
