The picture on the top left looks like a photo of a life size fishing boat tied to the dock, but the second photo includes a ruler to prove it is actually a scale-size replica.  Aren’t they amazing??

Miniature Art is fascinating. It can be held in the palm of your hand.  Paintings, sculptures and scale-model furniture are just some examples of how this art form is presented, but the process always involves acute attention to detail regardless of its form.

Nothing makes us happier than having satisfied consumers write in to tell us about how Super Glue Corporation’s products are working for them.  We use this information in our product research and development process.  Here is what talented miniature artist (of the fishing scene pictured above), Jacqui M., from Hawaii, recently shared:

I am a miniaturist working in 1:48″ scale and I work with fragile scale pieces that cannot be clamped. I need glues that I can hold together by hand until it sets up and often I need to glue surfaces that are dirty or have had other glue that failed. Future Glue and ProSeal are my very favorite all purpose adhesives as they work for most of the things I need to do. One project entailed gluing a small building frame together and then gluing small strips of weathered wood to that. I also built a skiff that was planked and the pieces needed to be curved around the frame but couldn’t be clamped. ProSeal worked like a charm! I am currently working on a building scene from Sweeney Todd where the barber chair tilts back and required leather to be glued to wood and metal. The entire chair is glued to a “plank” which will drop a “body” into a chute to the lower level. There is no other glue I have tried that would allow me to accomplish these things. I had difficulty soldering copper to make an oven and hopper for a meat grinder and SuperGlue Gel came to the rescue!

    Incredible work ! I’m a miniature artist also, working in 1:12 scale. I use Zap-A-Gap in the creation of my miniature plants and flowers. It holds tiny leaves and flowers in place to dry, when combined with white craft glue.

    So why is it that the managers of local Ace Hardware, Lowe’s, Orchard Supply Hardware, and Home Depot stores, have never heard of Future Glue?

  5. That’s GREAT, Laura! Thanks for your post!
