Meet your new best friend in the art room!
Recently I was asked how I was able to keep my posters up in my room in the Poster Predicament article. I have to absolutely RAVE about the Scotch Mounting Putty by 3M. I bought it on a whim, at Office Depot, my first year of teaching in order to start setting up my art room. Except for extreme weather changes affecting two to three of my posters every once in a while, my posters, signs, and canvases (12″x12″s above my cupboards) have been up for over a year and a half and aren’t going anywhere! This is absolutely the best putty: it can mount, hang, hold, affix, and attach most anything in your home, office, or classroom up to one pound, but I bet it could even hold a little more! It leaves no marks on walls and doesn’t ruin the items attached. So say goodbye to blue sticky tack, nails, tacks, staples, and tape because this work horse can attach things to cold brick walls (what I have), weird plastic walls, regular drywall, cement, glass, metal, laminated posters, paper, canvases, cardboard, you name it. All it needs is a little kneading and warming up and a good solid press!
Tell us, what do you use to attach things to your walls?
Is it working or are you in the market for something new?
