Book of Charms 2 – Gluing Your Blocks

Image

Once you’ve decided the where and how thick of your blocks and pulled out 10 pages on either side ( not needed on back or front) It is time to GLUE! I used regular Matte Gel Medium from Golden. People sometimes use regular Matte medium, slurry (MM mixed with water) or even Mod Podge or Collage Podge.

What you want to do is use a bunch of clips to keep your pages a s straight and smooth as possible. Try to get the block section to be able to open flat both ways and don’t obsess about it too much, (you know who you are)it doesn’t have to be perfect. Then, using a brush apply your medium to the edges, working it down in between the pages as much as possible. Use smallish pieces of waxed paper under the clips to re-clip as you go. Then wait to dry, I prefer over night. If it needs some more in areas repeat as needed.
