Some trees that look very nice in person are not photogenic and look lousy in a picture. This is the other kind. But, thank you.

Just the basic silicone you get in a tube that you use a gun to apply. I used clear and a whole tube spread it about with a damp finger, didn't get a very smooth surface.

I beleved the stuff is inert and wouldn't do the trunk any harm. This is how it looks today. No sign of any more rot.

I would love to see it but something is wrong with the picture?

Well its raining and I have been petting cats all day. We have 2 new kittens and today was the first day they have been allowed into the rest of the house or to meet the other pets while roaming free. They would enjoy watching fish!

Thanks yes he was, he hasn't sold any at the moment, still sorting out what he wants to sell. He's only going to take a about 20 assorted cards, just to try it out.

Well he's using his head only doing 20 but I really hope it works for him as he seems to love doing them.

My wife does a lot of decoupage cards and for pretty much everything, she uses this stuff, if it's any help.

It will stick two pieces of card to gether, or if you want to raise them a bit, you just use a few blobs of it.



She makes dozens to send to friends and family at Christmas.

Thank you Sean, yes we do decoupage at the moment we use the sticky pads, but he's thinking of getting the glue.
Your wife's cards look amazing.

Thanks for that
My wife did use the sticky pads when she first got into the hobby. But she found them very fiddly.
She decants the glue into a syringe with a tiny nozzle, this gives her greater control over where it goes. It also saves on glue as it's not cheap.

Thanks i was wondering about how he'd put the glue on because he has trouble with his fingers, he has MS and finds it difficult putting the sticky pads on.That's why i do most of it, i started off just cutting everything out, now i put the pictures on the front and most of the decoupage. He finds the verses and the inserts on his pc.
