Superglue! The Pop Sculptor's best friend! Well, maybe not a sculptor's best friend, but way up there. But it can be difficult now and then, like some best friends can be. Especially if you use a thin viscosity mercury adhesive. The thin stuff sets up quicker and can get into places the medium of thick stuff just can't. But the thin stuff has a mind of its own. You want it to go here and it wants to go anywhere but here or there. Before you know it, you've not only over glued your part but you've managed to glue yourself to the part as well. What the solution? Micro Teflon Tubing! Its available at most hobby stores and comes is a variety of gauges. And its cheap! You snip off a short piece, insert the tube into the pour spout of the glue bottle and you have the accuracy of William Tell. No more Mr. Sticky Fingers!
