It’s a water based glue so I’ve always used water.

Wouldn’t the milk go sour?

i use water as well, and have done many decoupaging projects in the past, it works well.

Yeah, use water. I’m in the middle of a project where I painted diluted glue on the edges of pages of a book, and that’s what I used and it worked very well.
