Word of the Day!

adhesives


Substances, like glue, paste or cement, which cause adhesion, or stickiness. Apply them to clean, dry surfaces. Drying times can usually be reduced by increasing the temperature. 70° F or higher is generally preferred. Use caution with catalysts and solvents, because most are toxic or hazardous. Softwoods require more clamping time than hardwoods. Because they are so absorbent, endgrain surfaces should receive two applicationsthe second only after the first is dry. Clamp joints together whenever possible for increased strength. Applying too much adhesive can weaken a joint in some cases. Follow the directions on the package. Various types include mucilage, rubber cement, hot-glue, epoxy, cyanoacrylic and silicone. Factors determining choice are likely to be: the surfaces to be adhered (porous or nonporous), and needs for strength, toxicity, water resistance, flexibility, temperature range, setting time, and expense.

Darwi Classic is SUPERB for dolls.

I agree with Debbie P. This paint looks terrible on glass. Streaks, different colors. I'm attempting to paint a State Seal on stained glass to make a badge for my son and at the rate it's going it will be 2 years before it's painted good enough to use. Everything she said about the brush stroked and overlapping areas is true for me. Not a happy camper with this product.
- Karen L in Vandalia, IL
I have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.
