|Stick / gel glues such as pritt stick are used for gluing card and paper. These are safe and easy to apply.|
|Spray glues are a really good way to apply glue
uniformly to a surface. Surfaces can then be pushed carefully together.
The advantage of using this type of spray glue is that the paper / card
can be pealed back and repositioned several times before the adhesive
properties of the glue disappear.
Photo mount is a stronger form of spray mount and is suitable for photographs or thicker card.
