Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Polymer Clay frustration


Getting back to it, I noticed the second leg has cracked too.

I can't even yell my rage right now, as I don't want to wake the whole 
building up.

I would patch the leg cracks either with:

- hot glue (any excess wiped and scraped off),

or...

-Weldbond-soaked pieces of paper towels, inserted with a sharp tool.
This should help with stability. Super glue is no good when the piece will 
risk a bit of movement, and more polymer clay would just crack in the same 
position.


Since time is of the essence (one-day shipping tomorrow), I'll use the hot 
glue method.
