I don't have any photos to show at the moment, but I've been molding small gumdrops from Sculpey, and attempting to adhere tiny glass beads (the kinds without holes) to them to simulate sugar. However, getting the beads to remain stuck to the gumdrops is a problem. I've sanded the surface of the cured Sculpey to allow adhesives to stick better, but a lot of the beads still fall off.
What's worked the best so far to initially adhere the beads to the gumdrops are tacky glue, and clear nail polish (I'm using what's sitting on my desk, but am willing to purchase better things.) To seal the beads on, clear acrylic varnish works nicely, as does more clear nail polish.
I was wondering if there was a strong spray adhesive I could use, instead, to make things a little easier. Brushing sealer over the beads always causes some of them to fall off, and merely handling the gumdrops loosens a lot of beads before I even get to the sealing stage, even if the first adhesive has had time to fully dry before I touch the gumdrops.
Thanks for any suggestions.
