Re: [BKARTS] Yet another glue question



Hi Barbara,

Having tried to use Elmer's Glue-All, and then having used Talas' Jade 403, I'd say there's  more than "very little difference" between these PVAs. Jade 403 is not overpriced and is a dream to work with, in comparison to Elmer's. Experience has proven to me, "You get what you pay for!"
