Issue #047 - No Days Glass Fusing Adhesives
July 28, 2012
Hot Out of the Kiln
July 31, 2012
I have received some No Days adhesives and am trying them out with some of my fusing projects. Some of the glues are used to secure glass before it is actually fused, while other types are used to attach the fused glass to other objects, such as bails.
The magazine is taking shape, and I for one am extremely excited. I found creating the pages has been a lot of fun, but when it was all put together, the file was over 360,000 kb in size. This is way too large for downloading, so now I am working on revamping them and making the size much smaller. At the current time, it is 78,000 kb in size. That is so much smaller. There are about 50+ pages, filled with articles by some well know authors. As of this writing we have the following authors and articles:

If you would like to have an article included in a future issue, please contact us. We already have a few individuals working on writing articles for the next issue.
Until next month…keep it hot!

No Days Glass Fusing Adhesives
No Days adhesives can be purchased in many different ways. Such as: liquid, strips, film squares, and sheets. They are all very distinctive in usage and completing any fusing project. Most of the glues can be re-worked, even after setting up or drying. Quick curing and non-toxic, they also leave no residue on the glass.
Please note: Most of these adhesives need heat of at least 160F/71C to change the solid form into a liquid state. This requires the use of a heating tool to achieve this.
No Days Glass Fusing Adhesive - Purchased in packs of 25, 50 and 100 squares, they can be used as is or cut to match a pattern. They do require a heating tool to activate the glue.
No Days Thin Fuse - This is purchased as a 12” x 24” and can be used to created items like mosaics. Heat with a heating tool to activate the adhesive.
No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive - A light tack bond liquid that can be used to adhere glass pieces together before moving them to the kiln, or design with frit, foil or leafing on your fusing projects.
No Days Bail Bond - This two foot roll of adhesive is fantastic for gluing on bails or other items to fused glass.
HoneyDoo Zuper Glue - Much like super glue, this liquid can be used to adhere glass to glass, or bails to your final piece. It is triple distilled, which removes the impurities and keeps the liquid pure and ready for use over and over again.
So as you can see they have an adhesive for just about any glass fusing project. To read more and watch a few YouTube videos, just click on the image.

No Days Bail Bond
I finally had the opportunity to try the No Days Bail Bond. I had heard of this product in the past, but never had a chance to purchase or try any of the adhesives.
First I set up my work area with a heat gun, the bail bond, my fused glass cabochon and of course a bail.
Using some scissors, I simply cut off a small section of the roll and placed it on top of my bail. Using a heating tool, I moved all around the glass for about a minute or two, and the glue melted. Once cooled, it has attached the bail to my pendant.
I was quite impressed and wish I had found this bail bond a long time ago! It was quick and simple!
