I'm sorry that I can't help you with the tissue detaching, but my Senator (built last year for electric power and rudder only R/C), was covered using 50% PVA and water. Applied to the underside of every rib and did the job perfectly.

I have now used Eze Dope successfully on my second attempt. Using wet strength tissue by Ben Buckle applied wetted with VERY thin Easy Dope, and full strength PVA as the adhesive. When dry and fully shrunk, applying several thinned coats of Eze Dope gave a highly satisfactory result.

Advantages of Eze Dope were the lack of smell so I could do the covering in the house instead of my shed, Also the thinned Eze Dope was in an open tub and final coats were applied over an evening and the following morning without sealing the container. Try that with cellulose dope.

A previous attempt failed because I treated Eze Dope as if it was cellulose dope...HUGE mistake and dramatic failure putting me off it's use for a long time.
