Hi,

I'm based in the Philippines and it is quite difficult to find a consistent supply of Modge Podge over here. I am looking for alternatives....

I need to an adhesive that can be safely used with photos printed on Epson ink jet photo papers (semi-gloss or matte finish). I also need a sealer for the surface of the photo (which is fixed after printing with Grumbacher's Matte Fixative). Elmer's all-purpose glue and Elmer's School Glue Gel (non-toxic) are the easily available glues/adhesives over here. Can I use these - especially the School Glue Gel w/c is clear and non-toxic) as the adhesive for the photos?

I am gluing the photo papers onto ceramic tiles.  What would be the long-term effects of these types of adhesives if used on on the photo paper printed with ink jet?

A link to a sample photo tile is here:

Thanks. I hope someone out there can help me with some photo-safe alternatives.

Cheers....
