Got a question for people who glue stuff. Now I use a few adhesives, my favorite is my Tombo double stick tape, but (as I have learned) you can't use that for everything. I've taken to using glue dots for ribbon and smaller things that my tape doesn't stick to. I also use my E6000 glue for 3D elements, anything that's too heavy for the glue dots. Every once in awhile, I'll use my UHU glue stick to glue on some small things, or old book pages that just come off onto my double-stick tape.
I've also been using some spray adhesive for larger areas, or for vellum, as I've decided I can see everything else through the vellum. Now, I use a pizza box to spray my adhesive in, because you know if you use the spray adhesive, it seems to get on EVERYTHING within in spraying distance. My question is (I do have one), what do you do to get it off your hands? I have been trying to use other adhesives instead of the spray lately because I haven't found a way NOT to get it on my hands when picking up the piece I just sprayed. And I haven't found a way to get it off my hands once it's on there. Since it never seems to dry, I just get more crap stuck to little parts of my hands and then within a few days it goes away (after numerous washing of my hands). I could wear gloves, but I like to get down and dirty when I'm creating, I love the ink stains I get on my hands (not so much my clothes, which happens quite a bit).
So, anyone have any suggestions? I can't be the only one who uses spray adhesive. How do you guys either avoid getting it on yourselves or get it off once it's on your hands?
