my favorite glues

these are the adhesives i use on a daily basis. hot glue guns work, but can also burn your fingers! ouch!
my personal favorite is Liquitex Gloss Medium . it leaves a shine if you put it on the surface- we like that.
you can also make image transfers with it. i learned about this at the SEDONA ARTS CENTER while taking a workshop led by Gretchen Bierbaum, President and Founder of the National Collage Society.

sometimes i'll use a rolling pin to get the paper to lay flat on the panel. a printing press would also do the trick.
