    it wasnt for no reason, people were talking about that sort of thing earlier so i put my 2 cents in. but on the weatpaste in the kiwi bottle. that sounds like a really good idea, it would just take forever to cover a good amount of surface if u have a big poster

    For BIG posters of course brush would be better, but if you have something size of A4 then it would probably be good.

    not really I don't think, it's not strong enough, you can take the rusto fats that come on them off. stickers would be much better, plus since you can get halfsheet size totally blank stickers from dhl for free it makes no sense. I got some 3m 90 I haven' really used it much yet, but it seems pretty good, my friend has a ton of super 77, so I have to try that too.

    the trouble with kiwi's is you can only use them on smooth-ish surfaces, I was thinking of trying a spray bottle and agricultural sprayer, but it might be too thick. also you can put it in a water bottle with the pop-up lids, like on dish soap, put it on, then just even it out witha brush.

    newsprint, some people use butcher paper, just use thin paper

    I know 90 is the strongest, but I'm not sure how well it bonds paper

    biggest in the country, I doubt that, have you ever seen the massive obey posters? 70 cm insn't that big, also it isn't pasted down, and I see light switches in the pictures, keep drawing for a while, before you start putting things up, or at least keep it small

    I made some wheatpaste a few hours ago, and i put in it a water bottle and now it has gone all clumped together, it's still sticky but it isn't very liquidy if you know what i mean. Does anyone know why this has happened??
    This is my first time making paste so im not to sure.
