    Glue question

    What can I use to glue (or stick) some paper to some tile for a while, and then be able to remove it easily later, like with some warm water? Could I use some watered down Elmer's glue?

    depends on the use. you can just wet the paper and apply it to the tile and it will stick.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    What Dave said - or if your really do need glue, then use Titebond liquid hide glue. Goes on easily, and per your spec, dissolves in warm water.

    Or just a little flour and water. I used to use it to put custom paper labels on beer bottles. Comes right off with a little water.
