A note about PVA glue:
************************
PVA glue is sensitive to temperature. If it is stored below freezing it will loose its adhesion. The texture of the glue should resemble Elmer's glue. If it has thickened to a paste like consistency or become clumpy or sandy it may have been exposed to low temperatures for too long. If you have concerns about freezing temperatures contact me for options.
