Lepage Ultra Gel - Test Two

My hubby likes to weld, and has been making little garden bugs for a year or so now.  He uses washers for eyes, but I had some green glass decorator pieces that I thought would make great eyes. While the rest of the critter is welded together, the eyes have to be glued on.  One of the bugs spent the winter in the car, and I guess the glue didn't like expansion and contraction caused by the temperature changes. The eyes fell off.  So we decided to put them back on with the Lepage Ultra Gel Control Super Glue.  It's easy to use because it says where you put it. There was no need to turn the
bug to a position where the eyes would have to lay on a horizontal surface while the eyes were put in place.  They went on easily and stayed where they were put.

This gave my hubby another idea.  What if he decided to make a lizard instead.  He wanted to put scales down it's back, but the little  metal pieces would have been difficult to weld in place.  He decided to try gluing them instead.  I think he's going to be pretty cute. I just wonder what colour he'll decide to paint him.

Meanwhile he decided to just glue 4 nails together, just to see if he could. That worked pretty well too.  I don't know if he has something in mind for that, but if he doesn't, it may still spark some new ideas as well.


  1. The bugs are adorable! I think I might benefit from this glue. Crazy glue and I do not get together very well.


  2. Love those bugs! I'll have to take a look at that glue, my go to these days has either been E6000 or Gorilla Glue (holy messy!)
