Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This sequel to Young's The Crafter's Guide to Glues (LJ 2/15/96) offers information about glues and adhesives that have recently come on the market as well as old favorites such as rubber cement and white glue. There are simple projects developed by Ward (Stamping Made Easy) using various kinds of glue, but the chief value of this book is as a reference for the application and use of the rather bewildering array of adhesives now available. Brand names are listed for each type (in fact, a brand name index would have been useful), and there is a well-illustrated section on tools used in gluing projects. Libraries already having Young's previous book will want to replace it with this one. Other libraries will want to add this to their crafts collections.

Format: Paperback
This book is totally mistitled -- it describes a number of craft projects that use adhesives that were used decades ago. It gives no systematic description of various adhesives, what is good for what surfaces, strength, temperature ranges, etc. Most of its info is totally out of date as of 2010 -- minimal discussion of epoxies, polyurethanes, and none about cyanoacrylate, silanes (strong silicone derivatives), newer polyvinyl types (Titebond III). Might have limited value for hobby crafters, but less than useless for serious maintenance purposes -- people who need and use glues for building and repairing things.

The title of this book is a gross overstatement and highly misleading. It is in no way a complete guide to glues and adhesives. A more approiate title would be "A Craft Persons Guide to Glues and Adhesives" because thats all the book is. If you're not a craft person this book is not for you.

As one with a strong chemical background; museum/fossil conservator (using and testing a multitude of acrylics, acryloids, butvars, animal & wood glues, cyanoacrylates/superglues, etc.); and crafter (multi media - metals, rocks/minerals, fabric, paper, acrylics, oils, colored pencils, molding and casting, jewelry making and so much more), books like these cover only the basics. It is imperative for all to do their OWN tests on products that can be tossed if the "experiment" doesn't work out. Test FIRST, then apply where appropriate. If you have access to the latest publications on adhesives/coatings/glues, I believe it is important to learn from the scientists who actually developed many of these adhesives/coatings, yet note that if one doesn't try "new" or "different" products on specific applications, one may never know if that product is really the best. I've seen products used for different applications and work - surprise. Yet others haved failed, in fact many adhesives fail over time, yellow over time, crack, become brittle, cause over fusing between the glue and product where the glue was applied, AND cause health problems. So know your products used in your work. Try to get MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) information for your products in your "arsenal" (I have a huge tool kit full of various products). And remember, using one product or just a few for all your work is not smart - use the best product for the job and if it poses a health concern, protect yourself. Learn as much as you can - information provides power and a satisfactory product (artwork or other project you may be involved in). Wish this book (and its sister book) could have been more explicit on these suggestions I have provided. Yet for the beginning crafter, it is a good place to start.

I ordered this book after a student brought a copy to the collage class I teach at a local community college. I was taken aback by the cover photos which feature some fairly dreadful "loving hands at home" crafts as do many of the projects sprinkled throughout the text. BUT, the chapter by chapter information on specific types of glues and adhesives is thorough, extremely practical and makes this book a keeper. Clearly written. Lots of specific name brand citations, application hints, and references to producer's websites. I only wish that there were a new edition.

This book would be an welcome addition to any crafter's library.
It is an excellent reference, and fun to look at as well. She includes the up-to date information on glues and adhesives and certainly answered my questions about which to use for what.
Many times I am uncertain which one to use, since many projects do not specify what type of glue or adhesive to use. Sometimes this meant disappointing results, when I chose the wrong glue. This book has come to the rescue on many occasions since I could be sure of good results.
