Best glue for the job?
Good day fellow crafters!
I do a lot of sewing and use Hobbycraft Fabric Glue for most of my glueing needs. My question is this, I have recently come across some patterns I want to try where it tells me to glue on sequins, buttons and beads... I've tried with the fabric glue before but found that sometimes items can be knocked off... Can anyone suggest a good type of glue? And if anyone could clear up the difference between a hot and cold glue gun at the same time that would be amazing!
I would recommend liquid stitch. It is a fabric glue that works pretty well.
As for glue guns, high temperature/hot guns are best for projects involving hard and natural materials like metal, glass, and stone.
Low temperature guns are better for use with plastics and heat-sensitive materials.
You can use E6000 if you aren't one of the people who get afraid of the "This contains stuff that the state of California recognizes as a cancer causing thing". It will glue ANYTHING to ANYTHING except for paper.
I got it, and honestly I've seen tons of things that say the California/Cancer warning, it just means to do it in a well ventilated area. It has strong fumes and those are what you worry about, so do it outside/in the garage with the door open, and/or wear a mask if you want. I don't wear a mask when I use it. It's $5 for a pretty big tube of it.
I need to look into where I can get these glues. I think it'll have to be online as I am in the UK. Thank you for the suggestions!
