Cheap Superglue

As a long time figure maker, cheap superglue is something I have avoided using for many years. You know the stuff, it’s in the £1 isle, runs like water, isn’t very strong and takes 3 hours to dry. So why is this such a good thing?

Scenery making! It may be crap for figure work but when it comes to gluing down foliage, rubble, wood planking etc… it’s ideal. It runs and spreads beneath the surface giving a good bond, it soaks into foliage making it nice and strong, plus it’s dirt cheap. I have several packs in the garage courtesy of my last visit to the pound store. So give it a go, you won’t regret it.

      Well superglue was originally developed for rapidly sealing wounds in battlefield situations and medical grade superglue is still used today as an alternative to using stitches. Just never use it before flying to the states as they scan your fingerprints at passport control and it has a tendency to erase them for a few days 😉
