Here I am trying to come up with a non craft store adhesive. If I can just
have them buy something different form the usual sources, that would be
good. I will check it out.
I walked into Michaels the other day and tried to find a couple things.
After wasting an enormous amount of time, I found little of what I wanted.
And there was no help either. But the craft ladies thrive in that
environment. I guess I have too many male hormones for that kind of place.
But I've found lots of goodies there. T-squares, plastic triangles,
paint brushes, acrylic paint, etc.

DC was the one that clued me in to the place. Apparently it's very
well known in the art world. Tremendous selection, good prices, good
Silicone caulk or any of the polyurethanes would do an excellent

it on the finish side of pieces.

They have hot glue guns and insist that the adhesive does not work reliably
on the metal. O suggested that maybe they needed to go to a better hot
adhesive. But they don't want to go to anyplace but the craft store or a
