is there a stretchable thin polyurethane or silicone I can use on thin nylon mesh fabric for theatrical wig?
I would like to make my theatrical wig more durable and would like to add a thin layer of stretchable silicone is this possible?
I am trying to make this and it suggests either a water or polymer based adhesive, but I can't find which ones qualify. Alternatively, what adhesive would you suggest I use?

I'm wanting to make some micarta-like material, using two-part epoxy and paper. I've done a test run, and the material was rigid after it had cured for a few days, but didn't cut like I hoped it would, because the epoxy didn't penetrate the paper. Part of the issue was that the paper was coated, but I'd also like to thin out the epoxy some so that it will soak into the paper better. I'm inspired in this endeavor by these two instructables: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-homemade-micarta/ https://www.instructables.com/id/Mokume-Kireji-DIY-Woodgrain-Composites/ The epoxy I'm using is 3M Scotch-Weld DP-190. The label says it contains epoxy resin, polymeric diamine, kaolin, and carbon black. The complete MSDS is here. This is what I'm using, because it's what I have. Got a case of these two-tube dispensers cheap at a yard sale. :-) So, what can I use to make this more liquid? Right now the consistency is a little bit thicker than honey. It doesn't spread out when applied to paper, and doesn't soak in at all. My limited knowledge suggests that toluene, listed on the MSDS, might work, but I'm hoping for something a bit less volatile. I'm aware that whatever I do is likely to extend the curing time, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Hi gang, I know CA glue (Krazy glue, Cyanoacrylate) is solvent based, and inhaling the solvent is bad for you, but how safe is it after the glue cures? As I understand it, after curing the glue is basically a plastic. Can I use it in a baby's crib (Assuming it's allowed to cure)? Thanks!

I was making some stamp glue where i mixed some Elmer glue and vinegar. but wanted to see Wat happens when i mix Elmer's glue, vinegar, and super glue. like in 10 seconds the solution turned into a rubbery solid which took the form of the container. can any body tell me why this happened. it held its shape and slightly reminded me of molding silicone. it wasn't sticky and came out of the plastic cup easily.

When I say plastics, I mean more specifically, LEGOs. I'm glueing them together because I'm trying to make LEGO headphones, so I would need something permanent. I've heard people using cyanoacrylates and clear plumbing glue (anyone heard of Oatey?) I thought about using hot glue, but I'm not sure if that would give me the bond that I'm looking for. Would Gorilla Glue work too? Or would it be a bit of an overkill? I simply need a glue that will hold the LEGOs through enough wear-and-tear to last, and no discolouring of the pieces. And when I glue, should I glue the sides of the pieces together, or put glue around the dotted studs on the tops of the bricks? Any other glues or advice that you could enlighten me with would be greatly appreciated. :)

I want to treat a plastic sheet with some glue, so it would create a Post-It like surface. I'd like to have this (original) surface sticky indefinitely, and to have anything I attach came off clean later. Is that how these repositionable glues work? Will they stick permanently to the surface they applied to first? Or there is no "original" and "other" piece, and some of the glue will transfer eventually? Is there a difference in repositionable adhesive spays and removable/restickable glue sticks in this sense?
Asked by shinjin 5 years ago | last reply 5 years ago
I bought some fancy reusable clear plastic cups and I applied some glue glitter on them. Unfortunately, the dry glitter glue scrapes off, so I'm wondering Is there a sealant that can: 1) keep the glue from being scraped off, 2) dries clear (the glossier the better), and 3) is non toxic? Tried Mod Podge spray sealer, Glossy Accents, even finger nail polish. Any suggestions?

Plastic is easy, lots of stuff sticks to plastic, but the only thing that seems to stick to silicone is more silicone. Hot glue, super glue, Elmer's glue, Gorilla glue, and liquid steel epoxy all fail. Any suggestions? Maybe something marine related? (Background: I used some left over silicone molding compound to make a comfy handle, but it doesn't want to stay on.)
