I use wood glue to seal the majority of my props... it's one of the only things that makes them sturdy enough that I'll feel confident they won't break!
However, I always seem to have an issue where, as I leave the glue to dry it pools like CRAZY and runs down the sides of my pieces/doesn't lay or stay where I apply it. I always get dribbles I have to sand out before putting more glue on.
I've tried letting it get a little tackier before I put it on, but to no avail. I still have to sand things down after every application...
The shapes are typically pretty complex, so them not being able to lay flat may be part of the issue, but am I doing something wrong? Is there something I can do differently, or is this normal?
