Rubber Cement works fine, but as a designer who has mounted his share of paper, and gotten goofy on his share of fumes, I prefer Super 77 spray mount, or double-sided permanent (not-repositionable) tape.

If you must, how to do it with rubber cement:


Rubber Cement w/ brush

Rubber Cement Thinner

Pencil for tick marks

1- mark the corners on the stock where the piece will be mounted.

2- thin down rubber cement with thinner to a consistency of cream.

3- spread rubber cement on both the piece and the mounting stock. Pay special attention to the edges.

4- wait for the pieces to partially dry and get tacky 

5- Lay corners onto tick marks. Be very careful here, it isn’t easily repositioned if the piece is badly placed.


6- Place a clean piece of paper over the top and rub down over the piece in small circles with the back of a wooden spoon.


Good Luck,
