Peter,
Have you used this with paper prints (as opposed to canvas)? Can you testify as to the longevity for mounting large paper prints? I see it requires heat activation. How do you implement this?
Thanks, Paul

It's a vinyl acetate and parafin mix, perfectly safe for conservation.

Hi Paul,
I have used watercolor papers, Fabriano and Archers, 140LB-300LB. Making watercolor paper substrates for making paintings. As well for mounting Triple Oil primed linen to Gator board, also for painting. I have a Seal dry mount press for up to 30"x40", in sections. For larger work I use a simple clothing iron on medium heat, 150F. I place an ironing cloth on the surface to protect the paper and canvas from scorching...I think you can get a smaller piece to test. At least it was offered when I look into this process.

A PDF link for instructions and use...National Gallery in DC uses this product, both liquid and sheet for the relining of paintings.
