Looking to glue some TECHSTAR SNOWFLAKES onto some bases, and realized that using white glue would discolor it, since it will turn yellow (yes?). The same thing happened for some baking soda / glue bases I made a while ago.
Does painting on top work? I remember painting those bases, but it didn't have any good result.
Your glue may be old or an odd brand. None of my white craft glue dries yellow. Normally I use standard school style white glue, but as of late i picked up some tacky white craft glue. I like the craft glue as its a bit thicker and its initial stickyness is better, I have more control over spreading it.
Yeah but glue drying yellow sounds odd to me, unless the snow stuff you use has an odd chemical reaction with it. either way you should test it out on a spare base if you can.
I use techstar snowflakes all the time for my snow. I have never had a problem with it yellowing when mixed with white glue.
I use a brand of white glue from Ross. It is called ross all purpose white glue. I tried some elmers all purpose glue and found it too thick to where it was unworkable after only a few minutes.
Do you need to paint the techstars with white after you're done?
Nope. Just mix the techstar snowflakes with glue and a little water. Basically you want it to be like a think cake batter. Then brush it on ( I usually use the sculpting tool to move it around.
I have found that it shrinks a bit when dry so I usually end up having to do 2 or 3 coats to get it the way I want it.
All white glue does turn yellow eventually. But don't expect it to happen within the first 5 years.
