Papercuts - Framing tips - Superglue

Did you know that superglue is used in forensic investigations? It's true. Husband watches far to many programs on the Crime and Investigation channel, this is how i know this. The fumes of superglue fog up and adhere to blemishes and grease spots on an object and can help lift fingerprints. See here if you want to give it a go.

I also know this from personal experience. I glue most of my pieces with thick superglue and on occasions I have hastily framed a newly finished piece. The result, foggy glass.

Not a disaster as the powder can simply be wiped off with a rag and polished away.

But I would recommend, to save you the bother, leave for at least an hour, overnight if possible before framing your cut.
