Question about Crafts & Hobbies
Hi, Wonder can anybody tell me if it's best to use the low heat setting for sticking fabric to wood to get a neat and hidden seam edge on upholstery ? or maybe It's not meant to be used for this purpose ?
Thanking you in anticipation.
For polyesters, rayons, nylon - yes use the low heat setting. The high setting is so hot it can actually melt some synthetic materials. The difference in adhesion between the two settings is minimal. Use the low temperature glues sticks if the gun says there is a difference.
You can use it for this purpose, but it may not be a permanent solution depending on how much stress or load the fabric is seeing (being stretched) when using the furniture.
The best upholstery edges are usually stapled - where the edge or hem of the material is left longer than the area being covered. A picture would be helpful if you want to know the right way to make the edge.
