Skinning a Reflector board

When I used to re-skin with Silver Leaf, we would use Shellac.. let it dry to a tacky state then skin one careful sheet at a time. I have no clue what you skinning yours with(?).. or if any type of 'glue' will prevent you from getting it back to original working order. What are you using and why is it better than Silver Leaf for you?

I am not using silver leaf because this reflector gets used and abused by students and the silver leaf flakes off too easily. 3M glue is not strong enough to do the job. I will look into shallac. The material I am using is a diffused silver bounce that comes in a bulk roll from LEE Filters. Thanks for the responding.

If you want the bottom line in strength, use contact cement. You apply it to both surfaces and let it dry. Once those surfaces touch, they won't move again (seriously, there is no repositioning with this stuff) You put micarta countertops down with it.
