A hot glue gun is a great tool for building sculptures of many small parts. The glue dries quickly and firmly, so there is no waiting for it to dry and you can build almost any impossible angels. I got us a small glue gun, with a lower temperature, suitable for kids. As it does not get as hot as ordinary ones, you don´t get burnt as easy. A was very pleased with it, so was I. Wooden scraps, glue and acrylic paint.
