    Question

    I am looking for an archival glue for adhering wood to paper that dries fast. I am using small pieces of wood to make an armature for paper for a diorama. I had been using an archival hot glue but it seems too brittle and will not hold the individual pieces to the wooden box they are going in to.

    It sounds like you are constructing the wood box and then adhering paper to it?  We need to know a bit more before we can help here:

    ·         Is quick tack a requirement?

    ·         How thin is the paper, is bleed through an issue?

    ·         Is the paper just wrapping the wood or are portions of it free standing as in a 3D construction?

    Once we know these details we may be able to point you towards some potential materials.
