Parts-holding putty

RELATED TOPICS: PUTTY
Tip: I'd like to pass along a discovery that will hopefully relieve some of the stress of dealing with small broken parts. A product called Elmer's TACK - Removable Adhesive Putty, available at craft stores for about $2, enables you to make easy repairs by using the putty to hold small pieces in place while they are being glued. Simply apply a small piece of putty under each broken piece to hold it in place while it is positioned. When the part has dried, remove the putty and store it for next time. This putty also works well for mockups and trial-fitting of parts.
