Bondage...glue that is.

To glue or not to glue, that is the question.

No it's not!  The question is "Which glue?"
If you are a maker of any sort, you need glue.  As polymer clay makers, creators and artists you know that you have asked the question "What is the best glue to use for.....?"

We often need glue for sticking baked clay to baked clay, raw clay to baked clay and metal to baked clay.
Ginger Davis Allman from The Blue Bottle Tree has quickly become known as the expert on many polymer clay subjects and recently she tackled the glue query.
You can find her extensive review here.
Ginger must have put in many hours researching this and for that, us polymer clay folk should be very grateful.
Thank you Ginger!!

In case you are wondering, Shades of Clay carries many of  the brands here.
The liquid clays and Polybonder are here.

Ginger mentions 2-part resins as well.  These are great because they can work as a glue but also a protective surface coating. We carry Diamond Glaze and also ICE Resin (scroll down to find it).
