Default spray basting

i was at the WM yesterday to pick up some 505 spray, which is costly here, 15$ for a small can.
i happened to a nearby section of elmer's glue and they had a spray glue that was twice the size and half the price.
i read the label carefully and could see no problems with it. Fabric is listed as one of the uses. it is said to be
temporary or permanent. wondering if anyone has used it. does either of the glues disolve after washing?
comments on this are welcome, thanks.

I don't know what kind of glue you were looking at, but if it says 'washable' then I think I'd be tempted to buy it and try it. I'd spray some scrap fabric and test out the glue, worst thing that could happen is that you'd have to trash the scrap fabric and you'd end up with a can of spray glue!

I just looked at the Elmer's web site. None of the spray adhesives (that I saw) were washable, as in wash out. They all mention fabric, but I'm guessing that it would be to mount fabric on poster board for display etc., or for other uses in craft projects. Normally when an adhesive is listed as "temporary or permanent" it's according to how much you use and how long you let the 2 surfaces bond. Eventually, the temporary will become permanent. I would not use it for basting.

You can get a lot of basting done with 1 litre of Elmer's Washable School Glue.
I got mine at Staples. Check the tutorials here.

I've also read/heard that a certain brand of hair spray works great as a basting spray, Aqua Net, I think but I'm not sure.

Here in Canada, that same can cost $26.00 at Fabricland. Walmart sells it here for about $16.00. Talk about a mark up !!! I only buy it at Fabricland when they have their 1/2 price sale, which thankfully, is often.

look up online the spray glue you found for more info. or contact them. it must not only wash out, it must be able to be sewn through too. good luck.
