Re: archival adhesive for cyanotype?

I would also be interested in any ideas on this. Would PVA be safe? It has good archival properties and there is a reversible form which delaminates in water if the need should arise. I don't know about any effects it may have on the image, though.

Subject: archival adhesive for cyanotype?

Does anyone know of an adhesive that is safe to use (archival) with cyanotype on any specific paper combination? The adhesive would be applied to the back of the print, in just a small area near the center of the paper, to "float" it off the surface of a matte.

In other words, is there a combination of paper and adhesive that is not likely to damage the cyanotype? Or perhaps a paper of a very heavy weight? Or a way to treat the back of a paper before applying an adhesive? Would an acrylic medium be safe, if it worked?
