Topo map paper is cut from real topo maps so they will vary.

A note about PVA glue:
************************
PVA glue is sensitive to temperature. If it is stored below freezing it will loose its adhesion. The texture of the glue should resemble Elmer's glue. If it has thickened to a paste like consistency or become clumpy or sandy it may have been exposed to low temperatures for too long. If you have concerns about freezing temperatures please contact me via convo.

Amazing kit. Instructions were clear. I augmented them with a few random YouTube tutorials as well to help me visualize what the heck I was doing. I added the red headbands to my book that weren’t included in the kit.

The kit arrived exactly as pictured in the listing. The instructions are very clear. My signatures are resting under a weight, and I’m excited to move on to the next step. Update: I finished my book last night! I had so much fun making it and am pleased with the results.

This was such a great project. It was fun. I even found a video of someone reviewing this kit and it helped me.
