  • New Puzzle adhesive product (long post)

    Hi All:

    This is being cross posted to several forums.

    I have found the lack of leveling out of the brush marks to be the most offensive to me personally, as I can find no satisfactory method to correct the error.

    To that end, I have been searching for another product to try. I wish to report on my tries with a water-based, low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Contact Adhesive that goes by the brand name of 3M Contact Adhesive 30-NF. The product I have been testing is the Neutral color as opposed to the Green dye version.

    The results are better than I had dared to hope for.

    As long as the graphic is dry and the inks are well set, I have not noticed any color bleeding, or discolorization. The bond appears to be very permanent, but as with any contact cement, you only get ONE and ONLY ONE shot at alignment. Any air bubbles that occur are there for ever.

    I used a retired cotton undershirt Tee Shirt to firmly press the graphic to the plywood for solid contact of the adhesive.

    Be sure to read the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) which has a link on the right hand side of the grid. This product may not be a good idea for people with breathing problems.

    The link to the product web page has tab to documentation for a PDF file on how to use the product.

    I am hopeful someone else try this product to verify my results.

    Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

    Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
