New stoppers, gluing process, and E6000 frustration

Last night's Curly Creatures - Side-curl, Daalek, chubby Flyer wine stoppers

The three new little guys above were last night’s inspirations. I’m still having a lot of fun coming up with new ideas! I also glazed two in thick Fake Celadon – I’m hoping they crackle well so I can ink ’em. (As a side note, it just occurred to me that stoppers could be terrific candidates for some raku lovin’.)

More frustration on the gluing front, I’m afraid. I had three Creatures in bondage for about a week:

Sanded and ready to glue

Glue applied!

Last night they finally came out of bondage… and the two that had center posts through them (the green ones) both separated with just a little pressure. E6000 doesn’t apparently dry at *all* when its inside a sealed cavity. (I suppose that makes some sense.) So, I’d already picked up some 5-minute epoxy – I’ll give that a try today and see how it goes.
