Mod Podge is a lot easier to clean off before it dries. The version you linked to for fabric is designed to hold up to washing. The instructions say it will stand up to hand washing, but user comments discuss it holding up to numerous cycles of machine washing. So it sounds like removal could be a challenge, and you might need to try different methods. ...

Another option is to needle felt the two together. You’ll need loose wool fiber (cat hair and dog hair also work great) and felting needles (very sharp, use with caution!). There’s lots of great tutorials on needle felting on the internet. Any sort of glue you try to use will be ineffective. Felting the two pieces together is simple and permanent, if you get ...

Corn starch paste will dry transparently, with a slightly warm tint. You can use it for about a week. As with all starch pastes, make sure to let it dry completely so it won't attract mold. You can also look into using rice starch/wheat as a basis, for a more neutral dried colour and increased adhesive strength. See here for an introduction to the ...

There are silicone sealable and reusable food storage bags like these that are good for over 400 degrees: Silicone Food Storage Bags Reusable (looks like this particular product isn't currently available at Amazon, but you can find similar items or they may come back into stock; at least it's clear that such products exist). They are sealed with a channel ...

There's also a manual solution to this problem: Sticky tape. It may seem counter-intuitive, but putting sticky tape on the mat and pulling it back off has a chance to pull the adhesive residue off as well. The glue on tape bonds with the adhesive residue on the mat. When you pull the tape off, the adhesive has only 2 choices: either stick on the mat or stick ...

You can use mod podge (decoupage glue) to decoupage your paper designs onto the mugs and plates - there are many tutorials for decoupage all over the he internet. Once your decoupaged mugs / plates are completely dry and cured (leave it for a few days to be sure) you can apply several thin coats of a water based polyurethane varnish (leaving plenty of time ...

Stitching. Glue is not a good way to add fabrics to fabrics for children to play with. Glue can get lose and the small parts you have glued on can get in the childs mouth or nose. I have never seen a glue that can not be peeled off by clever little fingers. Instead of stitching on pieces of felt you can embroider details.

If the ribbon is polyester or nylon, it will be hard to make a strong bond to it. Most adhesives will stick a ribbon to something if it's only decorative and won't really get pulled. You need something more secure if the ribbon is going to serve as a hinge or closure. If you can use a ribbon made from cotton, lots of glues will make a strong bond. Even ...

Just put it in a watertight container and shake it. A lot.

I would avoid chemical solvents intended to dissolve the glue (like nail polish remover or mineral spirits), as those may also degrade the plastic in the cutting mat. Manufacturer's Recommendations If you still have the adhesive can, check the label for cleanup instructions for the dried adhesive. If you don't still have the can but remember the product ...

There are specific glues manufactured for gluing clear and colored acrylic. It is thinner than water and will spread via capillary action when used appropriately. Consider when locating and purchasing such an adhesive to also purchase the needle-tipped dispensers often offered during the transaction. image courtesy of linked Amazon source. Ensure that your ...

I assume you use a molding silicone or a specialized prosthetic silicone for film and theater masks. The chemical compositions of those kinds of silicone are designed to not stick to anything. Construction silicone, on the other hand, is designed to stick to as many materials as possible. You could try applying construction silicone to the mask, but I haven'...

Thanks for clarifying that the decals are only shapes with no printing. Printed decals would be a bear to fix. The vinyl surface will hold up pretty well to cleaning. The main issue will be keeping the cleaner away from the edges of the decal. Many cleaners will affect the adhesive at the edge, or even wick under the decal and affect more than just the ...

I use UHU Glue Stick for my beer labels and it works a treat. If I print on an inkjet printer there is always the risk of ink running if it gets wet. Laser-printed labels are much more robust and colour permanent. The glue sticks do not last long and for that reason are not the cheapest way of labeling bottles.

Adhesives based on pitch (e.g. resin from pine tree sap) and beeswax have been used for millenia. This makes a hot-melting glue that's strong enough to secure knife handles. One example is Cutler's Resin. Here's one of many recipes; other similar compounds include stone dust (e.g. ochre), and were used in ancient Eqypt (an old answer of mine). The effect ...

You could use regular silicone zip-seal bags, like Stasher bags, which can sustain up to 400ºF, and then put them inside one of those vacuum-seal bags with the one-way valves, and use the valved bag like a mini vacuum chamber to vacuum the air out of the silicone bag before sealing it. People do this for sous vide cooking. See this youtube video.

Most often the best way to stick 2 pieces of fabric together is sewing them. In the special case of wool you can also felt them together by placing both pieces of fabric on a soft foam surface or plush towel and then repeatedly stabbing them with a felting needle. That requires no chemicals at all and you can decide how well they stick together by stabbing ...

Plain old construction silicone might do the trick. Construction silicone is designed to stick to as many materials as possible. The fact that it stays flexible after curing makes the bond very long lasting because it cannot crumple. Transparent silicone has the added benefit of being somewhat invisible. You can apply the silicone with your fingers or ...

I would look into making holes into the silicone face and feeding the line through. If you plan on using monofilament line a tiny hole and the line cut at an angle will already work, the line working as its own needle. Braided line will need stiffening or a needle to feed it through. Have a good double or tripple knot out of sight to secure the line.

In paper conservation usually a wheat starch paste (not wheat flour!), rice starch paste or methyl cellulose is used as a glue. As backing paper Japanese Kozo paper is the gold standard today because it has very long fibres (is very stable over time) and is semi-transparent and acid-free. Other paper types can be used as well, as long as they're acid-free. ...

I'd be tempted to have it laminated (it would take a big roll laminator; schools, libraries, or print shops may have them and the cost would be nominal). As long as the paper is exposed to air and humidity, it will continue to deteriorate. It will eventually become brittle. Laminating it will keep it together in its current condition and allow you to ...

Sometimes you can use the same tape that left the residue behind to remove said residue. This requires that the decal sticks well to the surface and has no tiny parts that might come off if you pull on them. Simply cut a strip of fresh tape long enough to wind around your finger. Hold it in a way that the sticky side faces away from your skin and the short ...

The latter idea of fixing the broken peg sounds the most practical. Strengthen the connection by inserting something strong, like part of a paper clip or a toothpick, to bridge the two pieces. If there is enough material there so that you can tap (drill) a small opening for the wire that is, just sticking something in without making room for it may split the ...

There are a number options for printing onto fabric. The two easiest ones are to buy either printable fabric sheets or printable transfer sheets. The former is great for labels or fabric you want to sew or quilt onto something, while the other is mostly for transferring an image to already made items, e.g. T-shirts. You can buy both at many hobby, craft or ...

Flour and water, combine so it is thin enough to brush on the paper, but not so thin that it soaks the paper. Work quickly and allow to dry before touching the paper or it will shift on the glass.
