As some of you know I have been know for my addiction to the product
Liquid Nails, but what many of you don't know is that I have been
actively trying to find a less toxic, more enviro-friendly substitute.
The more I teach the more I worry about these issues especially in a not
so well ventilated area. I think I may have found some solutions
at your local hardware store....
Here are my discoveries...beginning with the coolest.
It's Red Devil QuickPaint Caulk
A styrenated siliconized acrylic caulk specially formulated for the
paint contractor that's paintable in just 30 minutes! Higher solids
reduce shrinkage. Adheres to most surfaces. 40 year limited warranty.
Interior/exterior use. Water clean up.
----Red Devil dries white but has a similar texture as Golden Light
Molding Paste. As many of you know I used to use Liquid Nails as a
texture...I find this stuff is actually better.
Another option is
Dap Alex Fast Dry
also dries white...
If you want clear try Dap Quik Seal plus
Premium adhesive caulk with MICROBAN® Antimicrobal Product Protection
fights the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on
the caulk. Specially formulated siliconized latex provides maximum
adhesion and flexibility for a watertight seal. Paintable. Easy water
clean-up. Low odor. Backed by a Crack-Proof Guarantee.
If you by the caulk gun size you will need to also buy a caulk
gun...don't worry they're cheap...4 bucks or so.
I'll be bringing these products to class instead of my lost love Liquid
Nail. I think you'll like them better
I know this may sound like heresy to those of you who know how I used to be
obsessed with Liquid Nails. Times change.
Also Golden makes some products you can try...like Heavy Gel
Medium...this will take a bit longer to dry though, but does dry rock
