Good evening fellow paint-with-a-#0-brush-ians, I recently picked up a new kind of glue and I thought I would pass along my thoughts. "What's that? A new glue?" you say? Yes Virginia, this glue remains in a gel like state until you cure it by shining an ultraviolent ultraviolet light on it. After having many exciting gluing sessions with liquid superglue and the inevitable swearing and tearing off of flesh that entails I searched for a viable alternative. I could apply the glue, position things as I wanted them at my leisure, use a "third hand" to hold them, then shine the light on them to "cement" things as I wanted them. It works, and it doesn't. It does all those things well. The problem is that the light cannot shine through opaque metal and plastic so the glue inside the joint remains uncured. The glue joint is not strong. There is some good news though. This stuff is very clear and makes wonderful clear ice for those winter themed dioramas you've been making for Santa. Here's what you get in the package: You unscrew the cap from the black tube and apply the gel. Then shine the light of hardening upon it: The UV flashlight is the handy weird thing you see on the left side in the first image. You squeeze and hold it for a four to five seconds to cure the glue. If you've had better luck with this stuff please let me know how you did it? Thanks, Jay
