BLURB

I worship at the blessed shrine of industrial-strength cleaning supplies and feather dusters. My prayers take place at the alter of synthetic smells resembling fruits, flowers and laundry on a spring day. To kneel at this holiest of places though, one needs a good strong glue. There are countless bumps and nudges and accidental drops that occur when one is in the midst of a cleaning bonanza. As much as I appreciate a nice natural glue (containing bones, starch or fish organs) I prefer the hard-tack, no-nonsense practicality of cyanoacrylate-based glues, the main ingredient in any respectable synthetic glue. To make this type of glue you have to start with a nice Low Molecular Weight Epoxy Resin, add a dash of Aluminum powder, your standard Amorphous silica, Sodium carbonate (and of course a touch of Sodium chromate), finish it off with a bit of Polyaminoamide and viola! You’re ready to fix and trinkets you’ve shattered from incessant, and non-stop dusting, wiping and polishing. Just remember to put the cap back on when you’re finished. [Ryan Nimmo]
