      Hi all! Looking for adhesive and sealer suggestions for a large poster collage.

      -paper posters in 18”x24” size

      -walls are in a high traffic public space

      -permanent installation

      -walls are vertical at a 45* angle and horizontal

      Anyone have experience with this?

        We are doing a similar technique where the 24″x24″ posters are adhered to 1/8″ masonite which will be attached to acting cubes. We are using Crystal Gel. The actors haven’t received them yet, so I can’t speak to the durability. What I can say is the CrystalGel has been easy to work with and did not make the ink run or the paper wrinkle (the lighter weight plotter paper wrinkled a bit). It is very shiny and you can see brush marks. But we are spraying Rosco Clear Flat on top to dull the sheen. I will let you know how it goes.

          I did a whole room collage for a restaurant. I used Mod Podge. It was super easy to work with. Use the Mod Podge to glue the pieces on and then do 1 or 2 layers on top of that as a sealer.
