japanese hinges are typically archival and easy to use. I do not find they release with water as well as advertised, but with patience they do come free with minimal damage to paper

If you found wheat paste does not release as well as advertised I'm guessing it probably was not wheat paste. I made this video a few years back to show just how well wheat paste releases its bond. Wheat paste and Japanese mulberry paper are completely reversible which is why it is the primary method of hinging works on paper that I use at the Museum where I work, and the method of choice in every accredited Museum. Using a moist Q-tip, tweezers and a surgical blade I remove a glued hinge. Once the hinge is removed the paper appears flawless. There is no residual glue left behind and the paper is not marred or torn.
