Re: mounting issues

Gum arabic is extremely water soluble, of course, but otherwise should be fine. I've never used it as an adhesive so I can't speak to its adhesive properties.

Hi list members

I want to mount an image showing all borders of the paper the image is on within a matt. I don't really want to use archival corners as they will show. Would gum, (as in gum used in gum printing), be acceptable as an adhesive without archival problems?
