Hi Everyone, what is the best glue for dollhouse siding? I am using prefab clapboard siding.
Hi Joann, I use Gorilla wood glue, but I'm new to this this year - so maybe someone else has some they like better. It holds everything for me and dries quick.

- @holly-mccaig thanks Holly. I like that glue, use it for most things. Do you coat the whole piece or just the edges?
Hello! Might be a bit late to the conversation, but my mentor taught me to use Quick Grab, or Quick Grip seems to be current name. You put a thin bead around the edges and then do a serpentine pattern on the interior. The next tip is that you lay it on and then press and pull off a few times. Apparently that helps to activate the “grip”. Of course this was 20 years ago, and a lot has changed about the industry 🥰🥰🌎🌎♥️♥️
