Project #1: The Soap Holder

What You Need

  • Small piece of sandstone with a flush back
  • Selleys Hold Up tube
  • Secatuers or Stanley Knife
  • Clean brush
  • Masking tape

Step 1

First up I’ll mark the position with a pencil. 

Pull cap off Selleys Hold Up, unscrew nozzle and pierce membrane with the tip of the nozzle. Replace nozzle and cut along the second ridge.

Important: Make sure surfaces are clean, free from grease, girt and grime. Before applying on a painted surface, make sure the paint is in good condition & not flaky, peeling, or loose as the final bond may be compromised

Step 2

Cover the flat surface with the adhesive in long vertical strips

Step 3

After applying the adhesive, press surfaces together firmly, ensuring the adhesive spreads

Step 4

As the sandstone has a little weight to it & juts out a bit from the wall, we will make sure it stays in place until the glue sets with some masking tape


Project #2: The Welcome Sign

What You Need

Step 1

First up I’ll mark the positions for the dowel using a pencil with a pencil and then drill about 3/4 of the way through.

Step 2

Squeeze a bit of Selleys Aquadhere Exterior into each hole and insert the dowel in each hole. Leave to dry 

Step 3

Attach the sign to the wall using Selleys Hold Up. Cover the flat surface with the adhesive in long vertical strips. Leave to fully cure for 48 hours before use.

Important: Make sure surfaces are clean, free from grease, girt and grime. Before applying on a painted surface, make sure the paint is in good condition & not flaky, peeling, or loose as the final bond may be compromised
