Versatile and strong, PVA is great for bonding a variety of porous materials including, paper, card, wood, polystyrene, EVA foam shapes, fabric, Magiclay, some plastics, unglazed ceramics and some metals. Great for a range of projects including, gluing craft objects to paper or card, papier mache, construction, card making, journaling, model and puppet making, varnishing applications, wood working, decoupage, textiles and making slime.

Directions for use:
Apply PVA Glue 230mL straight from the bottle or decant into a container and then applied with an adhesive brush or paste spreader. Drying times will depend on room temperature and how much PVA has been applied. Allow 1 hour for the glue to touch dry and 12 – 18 hours for it to dry completely. Immediately after use, wash out brushes and any instruments before the PVA dries. To do so, use a solution of cold water and mild soap. Do not allow glue to dry in brushes or on cloths. Store container in a cool place and keep out of direct sunlight.

Papier Mache directions:

  1. In a plastic container mix 1 part PVA with 2 parts water. (N.B. For a faster drying solution use a ratio of 1:1)
  2. Tear strips of newspaper or newsprint paper into 2 x 5cm strips.
  3. Dip a strip of paper into the PVA mix. Pull the strip through your fingers to remove excess mixture.
  4. Apply the strip to your project and smooth it out with your fingers.
  5. Repeat until the object is covered.
  6. Allow to dry for 1 hour and apply another layer. Three layers is a good balance between time spent and strength. You can apply more layers for extra strength, just be sure to allow adequate drying time in-between layers.
  7. Allow to fully dry overnight.
