I've just bought and used a brayer for the first time for the Creative Escapes get away. We used it to press down our pattern paper on a book that we were covering. We had used a glue stick for adhesive, and after rolling the brayer back and forth several times, the adhesive stuck so much better, and none of the edges curled up while it was drying. I'll use this every time now when glueing down a larger area. I truly works great!
