Felt Friday – Southwest Chic

30 Mar

After years of living in the southwest I can tell you some of the Southwest color schemes never take hold, that weird putty peachy color BLECCH. As the area becomes more metropolitan I have noticed a kind of Southwest Chic taking hold and thusly (yeah I totally just used that word for the first time ever) inspiration for this weeks Felt Friday!

American Felt and Craft is proud to announce our new product, Fudge- Hot Glue! Not since kindergarten paste has glue been so appetizing! Made in the U.S.A, this chocolate brown hot glue adds an unbelievably realistic look to your felt food creations and holds tight to fibers for a strong bond. Great for drips, drizzles, toppings, and dips. Totally non-toxic and best of all available at our on line store, 4 – 4″ sticks for only $2.75, talk about a cheap thrill!

For use in all full sized low temp glue guns.

Hot Fudge

Tips for use:
To avoid stringy pieces never pull away from the piece until you have stopped all pressure on the trigger and waited a few seconds.
To remove colored glue from gun place new color (or clear) glue stick into gun, pull trigger emptying glue onto paper until no more of the original color can be seen, usually around 3-4 trigger pulls.
In the event you need to remove the fudge glue from your piece, wait for it to cool thoroughly and then attempt removal.

Note:  This hot glue sticks firmly and in some cases it may be impossible to remove, in which case try cutting away as much as possible and cover spot, attempting to remove glue while still hot can result in messy strings and smashing it into interlocked fibers making removal impossible.

Please do not attempt to eat glue of any kind, even paste.
