I am trying, this morning, to tidivate my display of artificial fruits. No matter how much Blu Tack I use, and it is a new packet, I cannot make it stick.
I have now taken said fruit out of the glass pedestal bowl it was in, and have it arranged on an oblong gold tray, and will have to have this on the coffee table, where I was going to put other things.
Answers on a postcard please to :-

I never liked that stuff , even when it did work it was short lived and always fell down

Julie. Sometimes if the Blue Tac is cold it becomes hard, it needs to be softened up, you can do thiis by rolling a piece in the palm of your hands it will then become more flexible. It does work on glass. :-D

Sorry Prickles Babes, but I am all in a fluster, trying to make me fruit stand correctly. You don't have to live in Cheshire to have display things. We are quite cultured here, in Derbyshire LOLOL
Thank you for the correction.

My Dad bless him would stick blu-tack underneath his ornaments in case he accidently knocked them off.
