Hi Guys

I need a white/ PVA glue that does not leave a sheen after it has dried.

If I remember correctly, some here said Woodlands scenic was the best white glue.

I am useing it watered down to apply some gound glass ( microscope slide slips ) on a broken building / rubble diorama. Also want use it to add some spent/fired rifle ammo cartridges.

The rubble and building have all been painted, so I don't want to leave any sheen once the glue has dried.

I live in England GB

All help welcome.

Thanks in advance

andrew

Glue used to fix tires may work.
Afterwards secure all te rubble you can use a fixative.

Here in the US we have Micromark where we can mail order. If you can't go to them then see a local jeweler an ask for help getting some watch crystal adhesive. It's the best thing for attaching anything clear.

Try to use Mig Acrilyc resin - P032. It is a highly qualitative product.
