 be a factor. Thick and/or heavily sized papers or coated papers that
 don't fold easily anyway will definitely crack the paste surface.
 Definitely don't use tempera, acryli paint or water based block
 printing ink is best.

 What type of paper do you recommend using for paste papers that will be used
for book covers?
