1. Make sure surfaces are clean, dry and grease-free. 2. Non-absorbent surfaces: (metal, china, glass) apply glue evenly and thinly on both surfaces. Let glue dry until tacky (10-15 minutes). Position and press together. 3. Absorbent surfaces: (paper, cardboard, fabric) apply glue liberally to one surface, position and immediately press both surfaces together. Excess glue can be removed with mineral spirits while moist, acetone when dry.
