How To Execute Detail Work with Hot Melt Glue
People tend to shy away from using hot melt glue and glue gun for projects that require precision. With its superior bonding ability, hot melt glue is actually the natural choice. With options like the Project Pro Needle Nozzle Glue Gun, you can get into any nook or cranny and stick even the tiniest dots and scraps onto your work with accuracy and no mess.
The needle nozzle prevents the stringing that is often associated with glue gun work. Its small shooting size means you can get just the right amount of glue on even the smallest gem.
To use it effectively, stabilize your main object so that slight pressure won't move it. Gently squeeze a small amount of glue onto the object. Hold the detail piece between your thumb and pointer finger so that no piece of your skin is touching the area that will be attached to the base. Touch the detail piece to the gluey area of the base and remove your fingers quickly. Then press the piece firmly onto the base in a steady motion. The piece should now be secure with no glue gobs in sight.
