Hi All,

On some of the pages (facing pages) in my altered book, I have used a glaze to enhance the color of the spread. The problem ... pages are sticking together as I flip through the book. I literally have to peel them apart at times. Any ideas on how to 'unstick' the stickies???

Thank you!

Hi Kathleen, I'm not sure but have you tried a tiny little bit of talcum powder, just a little sprinkle and rub over it and it should overcome your sticky problem without causing any problems, but please try it out on scrap paper first to check it won't cause any problems, my other idea is just to use baking paper between your pages so they don't stick but that won't help you long term. This sounds like it would be a common problem with art journals and altered books so hopefully someone with more experience in this area will help you. All the best

There is a product called MicroGlaze that is supposed to address this exact problem.  I have some made by Judi-kins.  It leaves a waxy surface that I'm not crazy about.  Ranger also makes a Micro Glaze, which I haven't tried.
