Glue Chart part of Building Your Toolbox - Adhesives by Kate Pruitt at Design Sponge
Footnote: * These glues are not ideal for adhering the material but can be sufficient if the project is small and lightweight, and non-functional (craft only). When using hot glue for styrofoam projects, choose a low-temperature glue gun only. High-temperature hot glue will most likely refuse to bond and melt the plastic, which gives off harmful fumes. Also note that only waterproof glues should be used on ceramics such as mugs, dishware and vases. Lastly, if your paper projects involve fine artwork (or anything you’d like to keep for a very long time) you should use archival adhesives instead of the standard glues above.
Just a simple, but terribly useful, tutorial this Thursday. Over the years, I have amassed so many different types of glue, solely to use on costumes and props. However, most of the time, I just keep trying different glues until I find one that works. But with this handy dandy little chart, I don’t have to guess any more! No more reading labels of 10 different kinds of glue, no more fingers stuck instead of objects, no more pray that your prop won’t fall apart because you used the wrong glue.
For gluing two different types of objects together, see if they share a common glue and use that. For instance, if I wanted to glue paper and fabric together, hot glue, fabric glue or rubber cement would probably work quite nicely.
Thank you very much to mediocrebrutality for pointing out the source of this material. It’s a very handy guide if you have time to check it out!
