    Appropriate adhesives

    Hola community, I've got a few questions about glue. What brand or type of glue works best on cotton or polyester fabrics? Additionally, for the military kitbashers out there, what types of glue would be appropriate for attaching aftermarket patches to uniforms, as well as a fabric liner to the inside of a helmet?

    I'm using Bostik's Blu Tack white glue and quite happy how it's working. It gives you some time before drying to correct whatever mistake and is clear when dry.
    Likewise I glue with the same the patches I print on strips of mini-velcro, or alternatively use double-sided adhesive tape.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks a lot, I hadn't heard about that brand before. I'm still just getting started making my own gear, so every tip helps.
