Do you have any tips for working with a glue gun?
Glue guns are suitable for a whole range of different crafts, and these crafting essentials will certainly up your game. They can be a little bit daunting at first, but as soon as you realise just how easy to use and effective they are, you are sure to be impressed. If you are new to working with a glue gun, there are a few tips to consider. We recommend ensuring that you have covered your surfaces with a non-flammable material, such as a ceramic tile.
Wait for your glue gun to heat up to the required temperature, before lightly squeezing the trigger to begin. When you are working with your glue gun, remember that less is more. You only need to use the smallest amount and hold your gun as close to the surface as possible. Always make sure that you allow the glue to dry fully before moving your project. Glue gun glue does dry faster than normal glue. However, if you move it too soon, it can make a mess. Also, ensure that you use the right temperature of glue gun for the material that you are working with. For example, if you are crafting with foam, it is not a good idea to use a hot glue gun, and only a low-temperature option would suffice.
Is there anything else I need to remember?
We would like to remind customers always to read the manufacturer's instructions thoroughly before you begin. There are a number of safety issues to consider when working with hot glue guns. Hot glue can cause burns, and it is important to be extra careful when you are working with a glue gun, particularly one that has a high temperature. If you do get hot glue onto your skin when you are working, hold the burned water under iced water for around 10 minutes. If the pain does not subside or you notice an allergic reaction, always seek medical advice. Make sure that your hair is tied back, as well as any loose clothing. It is important to ensure that glue guns are kept away from children at all times and that you never leave it unattended during use.
