Elvenwork Forum

This forum has been a way to provide a public exchange of questions and answers for polymer clay sculptors. But, as I said in my final post, there comes a time when all things must end. That doesn't mean the forum used as an archive has nothing to offer. Indeed it is still loaded with questions and answers that remain relevant and which are searchable! For that reason, I'm keeping it available, though no new posts can be added. If after searching the forum your question isn't addressed, Join me on to ask it. As always, you'll find me there as Katherine Dewey. Hope to see you there. --  Katherine

Glue that is compatible with vellum and polymer clay

Katherine -- I have created a fairy in polymer clay. She turned out very nice, but I was trying to follow your instructions of how to attach the vellum wings to the baked clay. I used eye pins as your instructions suggested, but I couldn't get the pins to adhere to the vellum -- not even super glue would hold them, so I glued the wings directly to the fairy's back, but I don't think they're too permanent. They worry me. I was able to use super glue for that process, but what do you use with the vellum to keep the pins from coming out?

Re: Glue that is compatible with vellum and polymer clay

The best glue is a versatile glue, one that will adhere to a variety of surfaces, porous and nonporous. For this reason I like those glues made for bonding gems or studs to cloth or paper. With these qualities, you know the glue will also be waterproof and heat resistant once dry.
Two really good brands are Beacon's Gem Tac and Aileene's Jewel-It.
Hope this helps,
