#toptips Super glue! I’m sure we have all managed to stick our fingers together, this being to our utter frustration as we can’t get anything else to glue together! Two simple tips, firstly only use the smallest amount of glue, apply with a tooth pick or pin to one of the surfaces. Too much glue and the bond won’t work for a long time. Second tip is the reason it sticks to our fingers and it seems to help to blow on it? It does, superglue uses the moisture in the air to cure, our fingers are moist and if we blow on it some moisture is added. Knowing this means we can use it to our advantage. Take glueing a branch to a tree armature. Apply the dab of glue to the armature where you want it to fix then simply dab the branch end on a moist tissue, place against the glue on the armature, almost an instant bond every time. Try it and let me know how you get on. Happy modelling all.
