Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
I'm going to go ahead and give this product 5-Stars, even though it's not what I was looking for in a pastel paper. I'm into photo-realism and fine details ,and there is too much texture for that, even after blending. The quality is right up there, and there is plenty of tooth as I did do some practicing on a sheet. I'm sure I'll find a use for it. It's just too nice to return.
I use welbond glue on my mosaics, glass to glass, and when I put water on it after it has been set and is clear, I have found that it will turn white again and come loose. I love the glue but found this not something I want to use for project that get wet like being outside etc. I found that a Silicone glue that is waterproof worked better for my projects.
