Ladies, I know you’re gluing. I am too – It’s just part of our nature.
But take it from me, it’s time to put aside that grody twisted up tube of E6000, and come over to the boys’ side of the aisle.
There’s a whole world of glues out there, most of which are better and a hell of a lot neater than that crappy, stringy, can’t get the cap off without pliers E6000.
Want to have your mind blown?
A single trip to Burbank’s House of Hobbies should do the trick.
This shot is just a portion of their glue possibilities, and before you get
all defensive about the “all purpose” nature of your E6000, let me say there
are SEVERAL glues here that will bond anything at all to anything you can
hold in proximity to it, and do so in a helluva lot more elegant way. In particular, “goo” does it all, without those hideous glue string trails, and in a smaller tube so it’s easier to store and won’t get rotten with age.
BHOH has only the most knowledgeable staff dudes too (Hi, Jeff!), so don’t hesitate to ask them for advice.
And don’t forget to check out all the ZAP glues – still the best on fingernail and (costume) jewelry repairs!
