I was told by someone, I cant remember who,
but it was not anyone on this list, as far as I can remember, although it
was a long time ago when I was researching the adhering of different papers to
different supports. I didnt mean ''supports'' as we use the word for the paper
itself, but support for the paper i.e. the support which is used to support the
paper when processing. Anywho, I dont really think there is much truth in
the following, but then it may be interesting to ruminate
why anyone would spread such information among serious artists but, then again,
it would be a part of a book which I am thinking of doing, called, ''How to
Stick Your Paper. What Not to Do.'' A must for all university and college
libraries throughout the World studying photography/art, photographic art, just
art, just photography and interior decor paper hanging.
''Water color paper is the cheap
variety which can be bought in pads from supermarkets.
Water colour paper is the high
status kind of paper which costs far more for one sheet than several pads
of the other stuff. This is the essential material if you are doing Fine
Art ( f /art ) image making.....where the value of the support is
considered, by some, to be of major
But not forgetting the cheapest and most
widely used and useful of all.

Get a good
quality two sided tape (expensive, the last roll I bought was
NY Central, but extemely handy generally), and put it a wee bit
the edges to fasten paper to whatever you're fastening
Will a wet print adhere with this tape? Is there a label which
identifies the maker of the tape? 'Sounds better than my pebble
