This is accomplished by dissolving lignin in a cooking liquor, so that it may be washed from the cellulose ; this preserves the length of the cellulose fibres. Paper made from chemical pulps are also known as wood-free papers —not to be confused with tree-free paper ; this is because they do not contain lignin, which deteriorates over time.
I just finished a collage on a panel made out of newsprint and magazine pages. Unfortunately, all of the paper buckled up and many edges peeled away from the panel.
Basically it is ruined. I would appreciate any advice on how to seal a paper collage without destroying and warping the delicate paper. I just joined this group. Its a problem, i know. When i am very careful about glueing i have the best result. I have to use white glue or other liquid glue and not a glue stick, though, when i varnish.
So glue your paper pieces down as smoothly as you can, covering the whole back with a thin even layer of glue. I play with them or put a very heavy flat thing on top of the pieces until they are dry, in order to prevent waviness.
If the pieces are flatly glued all the way to the edges they will varnish ok. I hope that more more experienced collage artists answer your question, but for me, either no varnish, depending on glass or plastic to protect the piece or very flat smooth gluing with varnish.
When you say varnish-do you mean like Mod Podge? I would think that is more suitable for paper too. I use white glue or gel glue and spread it thin with an old credit card.
I also weight it down to make sure it drys flat. I know people who swear by gel medium too. I only use Liquitex acrylic matte or gloss varnish. The matte is better because it goes on super flat. I use Liquitex acrylic matte medium as an adhesive for light papers, using a burnisher to get rid of crinkles or bubbles.
The great thing about this stuff is that it can be thinned with water as needed and does not compromise the quality. For heavier papers I use Yes! I agree that Liquitex matte is the best varnish. I do not like Mod Podge, can not remember why but Liquitex gave a better result.
Non water based varnish, by the way, is yellowing but for certain very hard glossy finishes it is really the best, just MUCH harder to use.
Waterbased things are obviously the easiest to use and are nontoxic, important if you have children or pets where you create. I still find that if one is going to varnish, a glue stick is not a great choice. And the heavier the paper, the easier it is to glue flat and bubble free. However if you are not varnishing, a glue stick is so easy!
Then i use one most of the time, like for greeting cards or whatever. But isn't paper fun??? Thank you everyone for your thoughtful answers.
Two of her tips stood out to me: Mod Podge can be used as a glue and a sealant she prefers matte 2. My work is meant to be fun, funky and primitive-looking which means it is anything but perfect.
I also like the tip from DianthusMoon about the credit card to smooth bumps. And I realize that my biggest mess cam from the background. So I am going to glue the background in one smooth hopefully layer, let it dry completely and then finish the rest of my collage.
What about varnish over Mod Podge? Can I use Liquitex acrylic matte over it? This is for a commission piece of art, so I really want it to be fade and dust proof. When you say "panel," were you collaging on a sturdier surface board or stretched canvas or something more lightweight cardboard, cardstock, paper?
The best way to avoid wrinkling is to get your paper evenly wet.The most interesting DIY art. Thank you for sharing. Surina says.
05/05/ at BALSA WOOD Always be careful when cutting- use a sharp blade. Almost all cuts are best made with multiple, low pressure passes- this reduces the chance of slipping.
