Hairspray

10/16/10 – Hairspray – Continuing our discussion on fusing glue, the topic today is hairspray. This is my preferred fusing glue. It is readily available and dries quickly.

Use an unscented inexpensive brand, such as Rave, Suave or White Rain. The pump type is easy to apply. Simply unscrew the top and use the plastic tube to apply a tiny amount to your glass.
