It had been recommended that I try softex as well but refuse to work with that stuff.
John... as stated in the header...
'Same idea and phoundation but with phur and more conventional tying methods... [as in tying... with thread]
The adhesion process is NOT nearly as effective with phur and hair...
there has to be an anchor point and pheatherz have that characteristic...
hair and phur, NOT SO MUCH... 'lacking a foot print to take hold...
regarding the suspect phly in question... clumped and wrapped...
Acrylics don't seem to have the same invasive sticky tenacity as the toluene rich goop and softex adhesives...
AND they DON'T have the intrusive toxic odors... [as in drain bamage!]
I find the acrylics easier to manage and very effective for my intended applications...
They have limitations but the good dwarfs the bad and they set up "on command"... my new favourite medium...
epoxy and toluene be gone!
