Hopefully helpful advice regarding glue marks on Polycore

Post by boscawen46 »

Hi,
I make a lot of frames using Polycore and I always use a drop of high viscosity superglue on each corner. Sometimes a bit squeezes out and I have a damp cloth to wipe away thoroughly before it dries. If however I miss a bit and there is a whitish thin residue left once dried I've found that it can be wiped off using a little WD -40 on a cloth. Very little does the job and counter to what you might think it doesn't seem to leave an oily finish if wiped off well . I tried acetone before but it damages. the surface/ finish of the moulding. Hope this helps.

Hi

That's a good tip! Thanks for that, I don't use polcore that often but the glue issue is always something that I'm conscious about.

BTW I've learnt the hard way about using acetone too!
