The Best Way to Repair Make-up Brushes

Hello Chelsea here to share the best way to repair your make-up brushes using the Best Glue Ever. Michelle shared with us last week how she used the Best Glue Ever to fix her Christmas ornament which you can find here.

The Best Glue Ever is truly that, a glue that we can use for many different projects or fixes. The project we do not recommend using Best Glue Ever is on glass. Can you believe that the BGE is strong enough to fix plastic, wood and metal objects? Let alone it is gentle enough on paper projects that it does not bubble, or wrinkle your paper?  Amazing if you ask me!!!

Today I like to share a fix that I did with my FAVORITE make-up brushes in which I was disappointed broke on me. Though I had the Best Glue Ever to the rescue! 

Supplies Needed :
Object for fixing
Release Paper (backing sheets from labels or stickers)

First, apply a layer of Best Glue Ever around the edge and top of the handle. Using your release paper, place your glued handles to dry. The release paper allows the glue not to stick to anything and will peel off once dried to clear.

Let this dry to CLEAR. This is very important that you let this dry as the Best Glue Ever works best when its clear and tacky vs white and wet.

Here are some progress images from the time I put it on, appox 5 minutes later (you will see in the second photo how some areas still have some white glue) to the clear and tacky stage. In total I waited appox. 8 minutes for this to totally dry clear.

Assemble your pieces together.

Wasn't that easy? In 10-12 minutes your object is fully fixed!! 

What about you ScraPerfect fans, what have you fixed with the Best Glue Ever? Leave us a comment letting us know what you have used with the BGE, we would love to hear!

Happy Weekend!

I love that the Best Glue Ever can be used for so many things and not just crafts.

Do you find it always works best dry and clear? I use it both ways--for different reasons. Dry and clear is re-positionable but often not quite as strong. I use it wet with paper to paper mostly, and I would use it wet for fixes, probably unless it's fabric. Then I'd use it dry and clear so that it doesn't bleed through the fabric. I also use it dry and clear if strength isn't an issue but I don't want it to slide AT ALL while drying like on a charm or button on a paper craft. SOmetimes I use it wet but after it's started to dry for a minute or so just so it begins to get tackier and tackier but still wet for strength. I also use it wet with glitter but dry with foil.This is a great question...wonder how most people use it!
