Adhesives may seem a fairly minor component in a craft project, but they can greatly affect the appearance and durability of the finished product. There are literally hundreds of different glues available, so how do you know what's best for each application? Complete with brand names for all glue types, here is a book to answer that very question. From the myriad white glues and paper glues to hot glues, super glues, epoxies, and specialty adhesives, this guide thoroughly explains how to choose the right glue for any project. All of this information is presented with humor and clear line drawings. Perhaps even more important, the explanations may spark ideas for variations on existing crafts, and there are a number of mini how-tos for a wide variety of specific projects.
Glue crafting for a variety of applications is covered in a series of step-by-step instructions for producing everything from kids crafts to jewellery. The heart of the title lies in its discussions of adhesive qualities, contrasting different adhesives with projects using them to best advantage. -- Midwest Book Review
