    Is he still your boyfriend?

    I take it by monster you mean the glue not the fella!

        I haven't got a tip for the gluing but a stocking over the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner is a great way to pick up discarded beads from the the floor.

        And thats just one of the fantastic tips I've picked up from this forum.

            I always stick my fingers together too, so I'm afraid I can't give any advice on this one... good luck!

              Depends what you want to glue really! Less is more! You dont need as much glue as you think.

                I used latex gloves (from hair dye) to protect my hands! I got some epoxy resin glue on my finger the other month and now i've got dermatitus from it so I have to be extra careful now!Uhm I wonder if coating surfaces with something like talcum powder would help? If you spilt a small blob of glue on it then I would imagine it would make a ball on it rather than soak in... Just a thought, I've never tried it though!

                              5 minute epoxy resin sticks ANYTHING in 5 minutes, its just like resin how you have to mix to activate and can be a little messy but its amazing stuff. I use it sometimes to coat jewerly like a varnish too!
