USArtQuest, Inc. began with 2 unique videos and a search for the perfect adhesive. Not satisfied with anything currently on the market, collage artist Susan Pickering Rothamel experimented until an adhesive was developed with all the qualities she was looking for - "UV protection, acid-free, archival, non-sticky, non-toxic, and odor-free. The result - "Perfect Paper Adhesive. USArtQuest was formed to market this product and Susan's instructional videos on collage and assemblage. That was in 1993. Since then, USArtQuest has continued researching and developing new and unusual mixed media art materials.
