Blow away hot glue strands

When you glue a structure with hot glue there are always a few stray strands of glue stuck all over the design.

Blow it away with a hairdryer.

Remove hot glue strands with a hairdryer set on high.

Set the hairdryer on the highest (warmest) setting.

The glue cobwebs melts away.

Because the strands are so thin they don’t need a lot of heat to simply melt away.

Removing hot glue strands.

Do not focus the heat on any section for long enough to melt the glue connection.

Simply heat until the strands start to melt

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
