I have put most of the seated people in my big bus station. I am now ready to do the standing ones. I do NOT wish to use those with clear or colored plates at the bottom; so, I am wondering how to have them stand upright.
Has anyone tried the sticky stuff promoted by Woodland Scenics for this purpose?
The only other solutions that appear feasible are: 1) super glue them in place having to hold each one for the 30 seconds or so the glue requires to set, or 2) use silcone glue, similarly holding them for ages, several minutes each, until the glue holds them up
I usually use Aleene's Tacky Glue, actually, the "Super Tacky" stuff for this. It "grabs" fairly quickly and is a little flexible, rather than being brittle like super glue ends up. If I need to hold it in place, I usually find some small object to place next to it for a couple of minutes.
Haven't tried the W/S stuff, but I expect it's much the same. Actually, I keep a variety of the Aleene's stuff on my workbench and use it a lot these days. Available in craft stores like Michael's and Hobby Lobby.
I usually use the Scenic Accent Glue from Woodland Scenics. Occasionally someone falls down and can't get up. Occasionally, I knock some little old lady over. These are times when they need to be helped to their feet and reattached with more Scenic Accents Glue. The advantages of using an adhesive that isn't too permanant, is that the people can be easilly moved, and when you knock them off their feet, you aren't literally knocking them off their feet leaving the feet and ankles behind glued to the spot they once were.
