Why do I need glue to make a lampshade?
Glue seals the overhanging edges of your fabric (or alternate lampshade material) onto your styrene and around the lampshade rings. It finishes the shade with a flawless, clean look that is more difficult to achieve when using tape or other binding materials.
Why should I use lampshade glue instead of regular white craft glue or super glue?
It's best to use specialty tacky lampshade glue because it’s much easier to work with when making lampshades. It quickly develops a sticky feel but doesn’t dry immediately, giving you just enough time to make any final manipulations. It’s also non-toxic, and dries clear, giving your lampshade a professionally made appearance.
