Wood Adhesive PVA Glue

White Polyvinyl Acetate, or PVA glue, tends to be suitable for eco-based model creations because it is:

  • transparent when it dries
  • easy to clean up and wiped away with water, thus no harsh chemicals needed
  • an effective filler
  • does not emit strong fumes
  • affordable and readily available on the market


however it is:

  • not water-resistant
  • has a limited shelf life, typically 1 to 3 years
  • requires clamps to bond materials together needing 10 to 20 minutes to set






You Will Also Need

Space

A flat surface that can be either washed down or covered for protection against glue, scoring lines and potential stains.

Time

Allow, where feasible, plenty of time for eco-modelling, no rushing! This will enable the immersion of effective flow of thought.

Opportunity & Freedom

Share encouragement, creativity, innovation and imagination with careful planning and safety in mind. Instructions are provided as a base guide along with your own creative thoughts and ideas.

Junk to Recycle

Select clean junk materials to recycle, avoid sharp and serrated edges and objects that can be swallowed easily if children are involved…

IMPORTANT:  supervision might be required if children

                        use some of the above tools.
