Ask an Expert - Forum > Mounting yupo to canvas?

Please advise on mounting small Yupo cutouts to painted and varnished canvas? What is the best glue or product to use to permanently adhere the pieces? I want the Yupo cutouts to be elevated off the canvas 1/4-1/2" higher than the canvas surface giving them a 3D effect. Can I use a glue gun or some type of gel medium? Thanks in advance for your help.

We’ve had a number of similar questions about mounting YUPO. As YUPO is a nonporous material it is difficult to adhere to other surfaces, including wood, Melamine and board. Although your inquiry about mounting to canvas is unique, there are a few suggestions and some articles on mounting and adhesives written by members of our community. Below are a few links that should help. However, it's always advised to conduct tests before mounting your finished artwork
