Default Re: Okay, I need some serious hot glue gun help!

3. If you get glue somewhere you don't want it, DON'T touch it! let it dry then 1 of two things will happen, it will peel off somewhat easily if it is not ground into the ribbon or 2, it won't come off, but scrape off as much as you can and then hit it lightly with a lighter (folding every other part of the sculpture back away from the flame). This will remelt what's left and make it clear.

Hope these help! Just keep practicing![/quote]

Just a little story to share....the other night I was using my GG and had to add another stick. Well, that second stick didn't go in and "catch" the tail end of the first stick. Stupid me shoved the second stick in.....a HUGE glob of HOT glue shot out and landed on my leg! I was still wearing my good work pants, so Stupid me tries to wipe the glue off by grabbing it! I now have blisters on two fingers and a ruined pair of pants.
