I have a new glue question...

Let's say you've used hot glue on something. After its cooled, can you warm it up again (say using a heat gun or hair dryer) enough to be able to remove it?

I don't think so.  You can usually peel it off though...I'd think that putting in the freezer might actually make it easier to remove, but that's a completely random idea with no basis in reality. Wink

you're very randomly right OY Cheesy   It usually will pop right off after being in the freezer-though if its on paper it'll take the top layer with it.
I would think heating it up would just spread it around.

I was going to use it to glue some clothes pins on the edge of a shelf (for a nifty ATC display) but I don't think my shelf will fit in the freezer should I change my mind...I'll think of a different sticky method.

You can get E6000 at Hobby stores, Walmarts. But just know that it is very stinky when you first use it!! It's so you don't sniff it Roll Eyes I would use  gel medium or thinned white glue for paper gluing-or  the old standby-Modpodge.

I was thinking hot glue because it might be removable if I change my mind about having them there. I tried some of that funky super stick tape stuff. We'll see if that holds.

For paper projects that require a bit more hold, I use bookbinder's glue.
