i have a couple of ideas in mind at the moment, including making some fabric hooks to stick at the back of them, but I am open to suggestions and different techniques.

if i like your idea i will reward you with a heavily blurred picture of a raccoon.

How heavy are they? Would velcro strips hold them? That seems the least invasive.

Whatever you do, DO NOT use blu-tack. Ugh...I tried to warn her.....my walls....my art.....

can you drill holes in your wall?
if you can
you have these long plastic spikes with a round plastic disk on the end that holds the foamboard to the wall
you just bang that in the wall

Blue-tack is totally out of the question because I won't be able to use it on the walls. Velcro strips I have taken into consideration too so far. Definitely NOT drilling into the wall.

I'll explain a little better. The boards I am not using to mount pictures on, I am using them as an alternative to canvases and doing the creative work directly onto them. For this reason I have to be careful not to damage them in any way. I could frame them, of course, but at the moment I am going for a look that I like and right now is also more cost-effective. Also, there is a strict policy in the place where I will be exhibiting the work which prevents me from using any sticky tools that potentially can ruin the walls. Light-hooks seem to be the only viable option at the moment but I haven't had any luck in DIY shops so far for what I have in mind, so I may produce them myself and hope for the best.

Elmers do a range of putties and glues that would be perfect. They're quick drying and won't damage either the wall or the foam boards when you come to take them off.

Thanks again for your advice. I think I have worked out how to hang my work on the wall. We put it up this Sunday and I am sharing the exhibition space with another guy. Any London-based boardies who would like to have a peep, let me know and I can let you in.
