Just can't get the staff these days! Or was it that they ran out of blue tack?

:giggle: :giggle: :giggle:

Obviously not such high class bogers as around here. Lots of stuff get secured to mounts with blue tack around these parts. Blue tack is very popular with some of the local artists Some of them make their own frames too. The glass size for all their frames is usually 18 x 24, which is the standard size for greenhouse glass down the local garden centre.

I don't see the problem here, apart from the tape being the wrong colour? Is this what they call the bodge-hog method, will have to read up on this.... :lol:
