Have some prints mounted.  Even some that were commercially framed under glass too.  Heat around here gets in the 110 degree range.  Prints de-bond and fall off the boards far too much here.  Canvas especially.

Anyone know of a good spray glue that sticks well to canvas and cloth prints?  Krylon Spray Adhesive sure doesn't.  Sprayed both surfaces.  Dried until tacky. Rolled it on.  Put boxes on it to weight-press overnight.  And it let go in only one day off canvas-to-foamcore board.  Not cool, even though they say "cloth" on the can.


Krylon responded:  "Their adhesive is not meant to bond things that bend, e.g. canvas."  No kidding!

Trying to trowel on some contact adhesive now onto the foam core board and roll the canvas onto it.  DAP Weldwood 32 fl. oz. Nonflammable Contact Cement.  Water cleanup (Yay!).  Rubber based.  Sales guy said, "A lot of artists use it."   It's off white in color.
