Default Re: What is the proper glue to use?

You will find out through trial and error. Oh, and lots and lots of practice. After a while you will get a feeling for what works for you and what you are comfortable with. One person loves one brand of glue gun and someone else will swear by something else. It will come down to personal preference after you have worked at it for a while. Have fun and welcome to the forum.
