As advertised, these are mini (doll-size) tubes; so, a little planning is in order. Suggestion is to gather up a small bunch of items that need just a drop of the glue, and have them ready to fix all at once. For me, it worked with several pieces of costume jewelry and decorative items: quick fix, with virtually no waste and quick disposal of the empty tube. The only thing I forgot was to have the trusty bottle of nail polish remover on the work table....sure enough, I managed to bond some fingers and that was an embarrassing challenge. So far, the product shows good results, in terms of adhesive quality.
