Default New to clay

Hi girls,
I've just starting making the polymer clay centres for my bows and wondered if anyone would have any advice on how to attach them to the bows. The ones that I just made that are in another thread in the gallery were just attached using my hot glue gun. I don't know if this is the way to go or if I should be using something else?
Any thoughts...

I use either my glue gun or E6000.

That was quick! Thanks for that. So they do stay on then. I'm not so worried for my daughters because I can just make more but I make some for other people I want them to stay on.

It depends on how large your center is. If it's smaller in size, like your photo, glue gun worked well for me. For larger ones, I used E 6000 and let it sit overnight to make sure it really stays. I don't want DD to stick the bow center in her mouth either. That's not a good thing

Absolutely! Can I ask you something else. If I was to make some of these into beads, are you best to drill a hole before you gloss or after?

I would do it before, because you might ended up messing up the gloss if you drill after it. If you accidently cover up the hole with the gloss, just stick a needle into the hole to open it up again.

I hope that made sense.
