What are good materials for making collages? As in paper to stick your images to, glue/tape or fixative? I've got clippings I want to do something with, but I use plain glue and it always comes out lumpy.  Sad

if your are using white glue, you could try using a paing brush to spread it around so it wont be so lupmy. i just use glue stick, if im doing a note book i cover it in packing tape after so it protects the images well.  If im doing something else i just cover the images with modge podge, that helps protect them to and makes them stay on better... hope i helped

You can use white glue but you'll want to water it down a bit.  Two parts glue and one part water works well for me.  I use a medium stiff bristle brush to apply a very thin layer of glue, put down the paper, then apply another thin coat of glue over the top.  I find layering several thin coats over the top, and letting each layer dry keeps it from buckling.
