I don't have a clue what these other people were doing with their FiberFix Extreme Glue, but I know what I was doing with mine. I actually was in a dilemma, whether or not to even try this product on my project.
I have a very very antique statue of a wizard.
My wizard stands 8 inches in height, and is about 3-1/4 inches wide at the shoulders. It's worth a mint from the Windstone Editions collection of North Hollywood, California. Yes, it's a famous prop.
Anywho, to my sadness, when it was shipped to me from my murdered parent's estate, I found it was damaged.
You see, as he stands there, his right arms is raised slightly and he holds a multi-faceted crystal ball in it. And his left arm is raised up high, and on his arm and hand is a baby dragon perched. It's truly beautiful.
When I received it, the dragon was busted off, and in pieces, along with a part of his arm. So saddening and maddening to find this wondrous wizard in like this.
So you can imagine my thinking about repairing it, without an expert. And, with a glue that does not say it works with ceramics. So, it would be an absolutely gutsy move to try to repair it with this FiberFix Extreme Glue. Nonetheless, I had used this glue before and it worked SO WELL, so I decided, what the heck, I'll give it a go!
First making sure the fit would be precise, and it was. You have to have great surface to surface contact if you wish for this to have the best chance to work or not. Since I could see I could manage to get it together well enough, it was a go for me.
I made certain surfaces were dry, and clean. Then, I went to get the lid off, but I had not used it in a year or longer. And so it would not come off. I got some pliers and carefully jiggled it back and forth as I tried to turn the cap. It came lose and when I got it off, it was sealed solid from the excess glue of last use. Wonderfully, I just grabbed it and pinched and twisted and the crusty parts came off. And fresh perfect glue began to seep. So I got a paper towel and cleaned it off well.
I applied the glue carefully to the middle on the surface I wanted to connect. Just enough to make a good seal I thought. This would be a two-part mission. Gluing the dragon two pieces back together first.
I squeezed the dragon's pieces together and held it firmly, counting to 30 and then to 40. I carefully let go, and it was solid. I wiped off the excess and then got the wizard ready to go.
I decided the best way to do this one, was to put the glue on the dragon piece and then attach it to the wizard's arm.
Placed the glue in several key places, points of contact, and picked up the statue and fit the two pieces together and it held tight in place for another 44 seconds. I let go, hoping it would hold. It did! And then some! I wiped off the excess and waited for a few minutes, then tested the bond. Solid as can be! Better than I anticipated by far!
I tested the bond, it was so solid, I took hold on it by the dragon piece only, and shook it. It didn't budge at all!
It's fantastic! I could not be more pleased. I will go on my Youtube Channel tonight and I will promote this glue big time. It's awesome, I highly recommend it! It's never failed me or let me down. It's better than advertised!
There you have it, the truth about FiberFix Extreme Glue. It works great! Go get it!
