    Hello All,

    I'm submitting prints for a gallery show and they're due today so I don't have time to get a replacement print done.

    Is there a way of safely removing spray mounting glue from a print? One of my prints has a small smudge of glue on it.

    Please folks, I'm desperate!! Thanks for any and all input!

    It might be worth trying iso propyl alcohol to remove the glue, but test it out on a spare print first.

    Well, I just poured some naptha (lighter fluid) on an old print and rubbed vigorously with a q-tip and a lint free cloth. The naptha has evaporated and there doesn't appear to be any damage.
