    ​I am looking for an adhesive to adhere tar paper to a masonite panel. Any suggestions? Thank You!

    ​Well as you probably know we would not recommend using such a product if you are interested in long-term preservation of your work....but if you are well aware of this and are more interested in the aesthetic qualities of tar paper than we cannot argue against that :)
    While we do not have experience working with this material we would recommend trying BEVA 371 adhesive. Be sure to use protection when applying the stuff (e.g. respirator, ventilated space, etc.). And you may witness a slight shift in gloss/sheen of the paper after applying the adhesive so you might want to do some tests first.

    Thank you! 

    It is a completed painting that I am attaching to a panel …as apposed to a raw piece of tar paper, and I have BEVA 371! So I will cross my fingers and proceed with caution. Thanks again.

    ​Oh! Is the painting painted ON the tar paper? The tar paper being the substrate? Is there a ground at all?
