    I don't cast my own resins or anything, and only own one.

    I told my friend Hannah again and again that the arms don't move, but she tried her hardest to prove me wrong. So, the right arm of my glow Creature from Suckadelic has broken off at the shoulder. Will get pics later if need be.

    It's a very clean break, I'm mostly just wondering what sort of adhesive I should use and stuff. Don't want to F it up any more than it is, like melt it or anything.

    I suppose it depends what sort of resin it is. Ive used superglue.

    Original Super Glue. Yellow package... you can usually get three packs at the dollar store. Do not use the gel though. If it fits back together fine then it will hold it. Might have a small visible seam once it's set but htere's no way around that without painting. You can sand it or use a little more glue to fill in cracks.
    You could also email Sucklord and see what he says.
    Good luck...thats a bummer.

    Oh wow...almost forgot I posted this! That's what I get for going on Skullbrain in English class :lol:

    Thanks for the advice guys. But believe it or not, I still haven't actually done this repair! I'm ridiculously nervous about gluing the arm back on at exactly the right angle...and being as that I don't have another Creature for reference, I have to go off of pictures and memory for the most part.

    Very scary!

    ...not to mention I'm just lazy as hell, y'know?
