I keep reading about adding "PVA glue" to help with making mud etc. but I can not find it anywhere. What is it by product name? I am guessing it is Poly Vinyl Acetate. I have found Laminate cement but far to toxic to work with!!! So I'm again guessing I have the wrong product.
Thanks Bob

It's Elmer's Glue. Basically any white glue or Carpenter's wood glue is also known as PVA.

I have asked and asked and no one knew. I looked at Elmers and it does not say but it's the safest and that is what I have been using. Thanks for your time to answer
