Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

The art supply store  I bought it from said no water based glues because the surface is plastic. I have many feet of straight lines to do in making shallow trays.

Right angle joins:edge of one piece, to flat surface of another. So the foam from one strip will be contacting the glue.

From what I read, a solvent based glue may then dissolve the foam. So, what I found on a google search (recommending water-based glues like wood glue) conflicted with what the dealer said. 


Glue gun? 
Liquid nails? (overkill?)

I know there’s E 6000, but I find that a mess to apply, plus headache inducing as well.

Bummer. I was going to say E-6000. I don't know what overall joint strength you need, but maybe a silicone adhesive [vs. a sealer]. Good luck, and please share with us what you find.

I've used low-temp hot glue in the past with success.
