Re: "Yes" stikflat glue


Answers to both your questions are in the Archives, but I realize how long
it takes to research them. Briefly, no, Yes glue is not the same as PVA and
is not recommended for bookbinding; wheat, rice or starch paste is the only
adhesive recommended to use on Japanese paper. It will not darken the
paper. There is no such thing as "rice" paper.

When you have time, do go to the archives and the read the postings by
subject for the past two years. It's educational and fascinating!
