Hello, one glue that works well is acrylic gloss medium. The method is to
coat the item to be glued thinly and let dry, also thinly coat the object
the item is to be glued to and let that dry as well. Then use an iron on a
medium setting and iron the two together. Protect your item withe wax paper
from the iron. the difficulties are that very thin papers are too absorbent
and the gloss medium can bleed through. I use a mouth atomizer to spray the
gloss medium on in those instances. any questions if i didn't write this
clearly enough just email me at daved@vokurka.com  Daved
