    Oic. Im just saying to be sure to cover the top of the poster well with wheatepaste, since printer ink fades omega fast, and the paste kind of acts like a shield that delays fading and decay.

    Will a shoepolish mop with glue in it work for smaller posters? Just thinking about trying some wheatpastes, and I think about staring smaller and less messier.

    I had the same idea a long time ago, but I tryed it, and you have to thin down the paste alot which makes the stickyness suck. If i were you id just fill up a bottle with a sport tip(the little nozzel thing) and just squirt it on the wall.

    H3ttinger--It took me a quick minute to realize, you can do anything you want with a poster. Roll it, fold it into a little square, or crinkle it up like trash, it don't matter cuzz the wrinkles come out when you saturate it with paste. I usually fold squares tho. Large ones so it don't take forever to unfold if you're in a hurry.

    It would even flow through if you take out the flow regulator? (But yeah, then it will get messy and leak and still other ways are more useful)
    And by sport tip bottle you mean this ? (my homelanguage isn't english so thats why I ask those wierd questions :D)
    Also, which brushes are the best for wheatpasting?

    The best brushes I have found are the big 4 inch interior paint brushes. Althought they are expensive, if you buy some brush cleaner fluid( I found after a paste sessions parts of the flower get stuck in the hiars and make it stiff) and its a good investment. and yeah. thats the kind of tip i was talkin about :p

    I find synthetic fibre paint brushes last longer than natural fibres. I use the big ones with a slanted tip and make sure to wash em out good after every pasting trip. I don't use brush cleaner just dish soap....

    Yeah, I do the same thing. But I found it didnt get all the flour residue out, so I just let them soak in brush cleaner for a while and theyre good to go. Personal preference I guess :p

    Its possible, but you have to be a VERY skilled chemist id assume, and lots resources. Id just buy it. haha. I know molotov is making there own spray adhesive, I forgot what sight I found it on though. Someone should buy it and let us know how well it works :p

    Holy shit, me want it, me want it!! :D But most problably I won't get it, because I live out of states, and most of stores are like "wtf" when you ask them spray adhesive, so im 99% sure that they don't have it. But one good day, when I have money I'll try to order one from ebay.

    I found some wallpaper adhesive glue at my friend's garage today and asked if I could keep it. it seems like it'll work great for wheat pasting. It's not regular adhesive though, she said its what her grandfather mixed up cause store bought ones suck.

    It had the recipe on the side of the bucket, but its too faded to read.
    I could only read that it had flour, wood glue, some other stuff.

    would it be too old to use? cause its been in there for idk how long.
