    Polyvinyl acetate is the primary chemical in white glue and other similar glues. It has uses as well in alt processes, but I don't know anyone using it for traditional pt/pd printing.

    I've only used the hot-press. I know it works fine. Even hot pressed, it has a lot of texture. I wouldn't want to use the cold pressed version.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.
