HoneyDoo Zuper Glue

When I do my fused glass work, I try to avoid using glue if at all possible. Occasionally I will use a tiny bit of Glass Tac or Klyr-Fire glue to hold a design element in place; but only if I absolutely have to. So when my supplier told me about a great new glue that dries instantly I wasn’t all that excited.

This new glue is called HoneyDoo Zuper Glue. I bought a small bottle and put it on a shelf. A month later, I decided to give it a try. Problem was that the glue had dried in the bottle. Apparently there was a manufacturing problem. I got another bottle, and back on the shelf it went.

Pot of Plant PokesLast week, however, the HoneyDoo Zuper Glue finally came in handy. When I made my flower plant pokes, placing the stem first was the best way to design the piece. But as I placed the petals around the glass stringer stem it rolled everywhere. A small dot of Honey Doo Zuper glue instantly kept the stem in place so I could continue my design. With the HoneyDoo Zuper Glue the glass stringer wasn’t going to move anywhere. For the petals, I either used no glue, or a small dot of Klyr-Fire glue. The Klyr-Fire allowed me to reposition the petals until I had them where I wanted them.

HoneyDoo Zuper Glue definitely has a place in this glass fuser’s workshop.

      Won’t work in this particular application since the stringers are not flat; I bend them for the stems. Also, when I move the petals around the stringer would move no matter how flat it is.

        isn’t the side against the base flat, or are the stringers up off that base? if so, won’t they move somewhat when they melt down? you could melt them flat first on a shelf (very quick up, no anneal, and a very quick cool), then use them.

        a dot of klyrfire under the petals would prevent them from moving.

        i just hate using glue of any kind.

          Parts of the stringer are off the base slightly because I bend the stringers in a flame. So far they have melted fine and not moved around. And yes a very small dot of Klyrfire has been working to keep the petals in place.

      Felicia – I have not noticed any smell when it fires. Zuper Glue will definitely give you a stronger bond, but I would still recommend building the snow flake on the shelf. The last time I did it I assembled the arms of the snowflakes and then put them on the shelf adding the center.
