apart from being able to glue stuff it is excellent for burning holes in polysterene. I have a piece of it i got from a tv box and I've put one or two droplets of glue on the side. when I turn it on it's side and let the glue burn through, it makes massive blown up craters. its a really great effect.
Quite honestly I don't see the use if this post, but I'm not gonna close it.
I have to agree that glue makes good use by burning holes like that, but up till now it's only been a real problem to me.
In my early pioneering days of scenery making it ruined more that one piece of terrain.
More than one DragonSlayer? Didnt you learn your lesson the first time?
You can use superglue in loads of different ways on polystyrene to many different effects..
For smooth cavern walls smear some from top to bottom on one side.
For weird craggy surfaces dip the area you want messed up in a bowl / shallow plate of super glue then hang it a few inches from the plate and the melting polystyrene will drip downwards..
if you're going to this may I suggest getting a large tub of superglue... I managed to get some from a art suppliers for about Â£20 i think for 2 litres. Dont get me wrong though.. Its crap superglue and you cant use it on your mini's .... but it melts polystyrene good. Just try not to inhale the fumes or youll end up like me.
Yeh 2 litres of super glue now thats alot of fumes and 2 litres of superglue is going to get a bit messy :rolleyes: but sounds great for making scenery.
Umm you guys are aware that Polycement does the same thing to polystyrene?
It's not the glue it self that melts the stuff, it's the solvents in them.
You'll get almost the same result if you try to spraypaint a chunk of polystyrene.
Hey, try washing you paint brushes in petrol or acetone or whatever, have the brush soaked and "paint" it over the polystyrene.
But if you dont use the glue you just dont gat the same feelings.
What do you mean?
I can quit whenever I want!
Let me point out that if you use any of the polystyrene melting glues near a heat source like a gas fire or candle or a lit cigarette, in a confined space with bad ventilation the vapour can react with the heat source and produce a lethal gas called Phosgene.Please be aware of this and be careful. I'm being serious, this is not a gag.Phosgene was used extensively during World War I as a choking (pulmonary) agent. Among the chemicals used in the war, phosgene was responsible for the large majority of deaths.
Phosgene can be formed when certain compounds are exposed to heat, such as some types of plastics.
Phosgene gas is heavier than air, so it would be more likely found in low-lying areas.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
So now we all learned something new today...
Thanks for bringing that up.
