Gorilla glue just couldn’t salvage it

This past weekend I went for a non-destination walk to bask in the heat. I knew that eventually I would find a store that would motivate a bit of shopping. Although, I had already bought an awesome pair of pink shoes at midnight. As I walked I remembered the broken dragon back in my house. That dragon represents a wonderful time with my son at a pirate fair. I felt a grand need to fix it. And, to fix it immediately. I came across a CVS and headed straight in with a mission. I needed strong glue to piece my dragon back together.

The cashier at the CVS pharmacy store asked me whether I had ever used Gorilla Glue before. I noted that I had not. He advised me that it was super strong. Maybe too strong. I needed to use caution. I smiled and thanked him for the advice. Strong is what I needed.

I arrived home and excitedly grabbed the dragon and tried the glue. Then I became deflated. It didn’t work. it didn’t work. It didn’t work. I felt that the dragon represented this broken world. It had been strong. It had warm memories. Yet now its head was cut off. And, no highly touted fix could mend it. What am I to do with a broken head?

  2. Well, judging by the reviews of Gorilla glue, it seems that it is Something of a curate’s egg- good in parts. That is, to put it less kindly, not good overall.

    But Gorilla is just the brand. They make Several different products, some do not work well on hard or impervious metal surfaces.

    They will, however work well on Gorillas. The moisture on skin triggers polymerisation and the glue sets fast. So take care. Otherwise you and the gorilla will become inseparable buddies.

    I fix quite a lot of dragons and I’d recommend using a super glue of any brand made from cyanoacrylates. Comes in tiny tubes, clear and runny – so take care. Little bit of moisture on the dragon fragments helps. I also find that I have to hold the bits together for minutes at a time before the stuff gives any sign that it will work – so be patient.

    If you can leave the glued bits alone for a day, if it’s going to work it will cure to a very strong bond unless it’s too cold where you live.

    Cheers, Therese.

  3. You do not mention, what the dragon is made of, you may need a specific glue for that material, ask, or google it.

    Good luck with your dragon. 🙂
