Default Chip carving pattern adhesive?

I know this is a basic question, I'm asking anyway..

Does spray adhesive work as well as rubber cement, or is one better to use than the other, to apply the chip carving pattern?

Kris,
Was taught to use RC and I only use RC so I can't help you with comparison. RC applies easy and comes off with a little rubbing and doesn't affect the wood. I carve on a bigger piece of wood and then saw the outline.(easier to hold) If I wait to long after carving, the glue dries and the pattern starts to lift.

Fwiw, I use the 3M spray adhesive, the removable version, paper template, and cover layer of packing tape. I also beeswax the blade.

It comes off fairly easily, and a wipe with mineral spirits normally removes the residue and cutting dust from wood.

Blue D, are you saying you put the packing tape over the area you are cutting with a power saw ..and leave the part you chip carve with just paper?

or.....are you covering the whole design with packing tape? possibly to make it easier to remove? I am really interested in this thread, since I am considering trying some chip carving again. But transferring a complex pattern with graphite paper is a pretty cumbersome process and I have had no success with heat-transfer of laser printed designs. I had never considered gluing the pattern on and then cutting through it!

I am not a chip carver but I have the book Chip Carving by Barry McKenzie and on page 33 illustration 5 he said to put the pattern on with rubber cement. This is for a snowflake ornament.

Some wood block printers use a rice flour paste to stick patterns on the blocks. Tried it, not acceptable.
I can buy fresh, new carbon paper 8.5" x 11" in office supply stores (Staples). Can't see a reason to ever do transfers in any other way.

If printing a design you can use adhesive ink jet printer paper little pricy but works well. alsop for carbon paper i got some from an art supply store that did not smudge on the wood. it seemed "waxer" then normal carbon paper.
