Gel medium makes an amazing glue for collage projects, this is from the Golden paints website:
Gel Mediums offer artists many ways to build texture. They range in consistency from pourable to moldable with varying degrees of sheen and transparency. They can be used to create glazes, extend paints and change finishes. Some gels incorporate pumice, glass or acrylic granules that impart unique reflective, rough or absorbent surface qualities.
Gels can be thought of as colorless paint, as they are composed of 100% acrylic polymers similar to acrylic paint. They can also act as adhesives in collage and mixed media that dry to form continuous films with excellent flexibility with chemical, water and UV resistance
The water and white caps on this atc were done with gel medium and inks:

using glyceryn with it before. Where do you buy it?
You can find it at most pharmacies and grocery stores. You also buy 70% alcohol that has glyceryn already in it at the grocery store, then for a single purchase you have multiple uses.
