Wicking, non-cure inhibiting adhesive?

When making open-backed molds, I like to sand the master's back flat and bond it to a flat piece of tile. Cyanoacrylate does a great job of this, and fills the ~0.2mm gaps between master and tile that are often present on a hand-sanded item. The downside however is the cure inhibiting nature of recently applied CA glue.

Thicker adhesives like hot glue and 5-minute epoxy don't inhibit curing, but are a mess. No gap filling and they run the risk of squeezing out around the edges and causing a goopy mess. Spray adhesives are somewhat better- also no cure inhibition (at least the Elmers 451 is fine) and will never squeeze out, but also fails to wick and seal small gaps.

Are there any thin, wicking adhesives out there that I can use when I need a fast-bonding, non cure inhibiting adhesive?
