    Why don't you wrap the material round to the back of the mdf and staple it into place? You can stretch it so that it stays taught, and without fear of the glue drying and causing wrinkles or staining etc.

    I built a frame and stapled mine to it that way.

    To be honest that is how I plan to go but though I'd pose the question out of curiosity.
