    :mrgreen:Hi to all,
    I have purchased some A3 foam board to reinforce a current build but I am unsure which glue to use??:confused:
    Will PVA white glue be alright for foam board to foam board and foam board to paper?
    I have never used it before,so would gladly appreciate any feedback. :thumb:

    Is this the board with the foam core and paper surface?

    I have used Uhu Extra to glue this to itself t make pinhole cameras and the same adhesive when reinforcing card models. I guess any general purpose glue even PVA would work but I would edge towards a general purpose rather than water based product.

    David,
    Yes,the foam board has a foam core with paper surface.
    The paper surface has a gloss finish not matt!!
