Which Glue to Use?
than I expected! ;-)
Just about any tacky glue or white glue will do when using air-dry-clay ...but a lot will depend on what you are actually glueing. A handy website to bookmark is called This To That and it just might have all your gluing answers!
Don't let the simplicity of the homepage fool you....the website has all kinds of glue information. To find out which glue to use, fill in the form by entering your object (THIS) and what you want to glue it to (THAT) and hit the button. It'll suggest glues to use.
This site also contains glue trivia and sage advice: "There is no point in using a glue stronger than the materials you are bonding." Glues in the news, FAQ and links to interesting sites such as "You glued what?" (the Wellbond gallery of unusual uses) and "Art Cars"...you wouldn't believe what some people have glued to their cars!
(Note: Their links page has many dead links, but don't let that stop you....lots of useful and fun info!)
Hope you find this tip helpful!
