Thanks to the birth of UV adhesives,  I am glad those days are over. The numerous types of UV-cured acrylics on the market today provide a faster, easier, and cleaner alternative to epoxy.

This is the tenth installment of  Feather Brain by Drew Chicone. To read more about UV Curing Acrylics & Adhesives, Visit my website Salty Fly Tying to order your signed copy of Feather Brain today!  $24.95 + Shipping
