One of the planners of the project suggested this powdered paste: http://www.rustoleum.com/en/product-catalog/consumer-brands/zinsser/wallpaper-adhesives/suregrip-all-purpose-adhesive-and-wallsize
The construction site can supply us with water from across the street. But this powder isn't available locally, and is more expensive to have shipped from Amazon.
But why this powder? There seem to be many wallpaper pastes available. And why not a premixed in 5 gallon drums? We will have 2,200 square feet of regular paper to paste. So the paper will be a lot thinner than wallpaper. And hopefully the paste won't absorb into the paper too much.
At my local Lowes I find two 5-gal options. I see one is for all weights, and the other for medium to heavy weight. I would want all weights.
Then the next question is what thickness nap rollers do we want. We plan to put the paste on the oilboard, then unroll each 20"x60" sheet onto it.
