The best way to put a line of PVA and similar adhesives directly on paper,
or on glass or formica for transfer to paper is to use a paint striping
tool. The least expensive form of paint striping tool (about $10 in art
supply stores) is a small glass bottle which is capped by a brass roller.
The rollers come in different widths, from 1/32 inch up. By using a strip of
wood or the edge of the formica as a guide, you can put down a very straight
line. I prefer to draw the line directly on the page to be tipped in, after
having checked glue flow on a scrap piece of paper.
