I'm working on a project where I need to glue creepy crawlers together and then glue them to metal. I need a glue that holds, but is a little bit flexible. I don't want the pieces to end up being super stiff. I have tried two different types of glue so far, but they just stay gummy and rubbery and don't hold well. Anyone know of a good glue for this? I tried a clear glue made by shoe goo and that doesn't seem to be working. Epoxy maybe?

To glue goop together or to add flocking or fur to goop use spirit gum,, Halloween is coming youl find it at any Halloween shop,, Its used for applying halloween make up or fake mustach ect,, but it sticks to goop as good as it sticks to skin,,
Ive wanted to get it for a long time to sell on my site but I can never find a supplier to sell it to me in bulk at a discount,,,

I like to use Loctite's "Vinyl,Fabric And Plastic" Flexable Adhesive. This can be found at Lowes or Home Depot. I have tried almost everything except the spirit gum.

Thanks for the suggestions! I looked for Spirit Gum yesterday but I think it's still a little too early in the Halloween season. I struck out. I'll have to check Lowes for that other stuff. In the mean time I tried epoxy since I had it sitting around... I'll at that to the list of won't work.

I haven't found the Loctite stuff yet. Been looking everywhere.
I found some spirit gum, but it wouldn't work for me. It didn't dry, even over night. Is there a certain brand that works? I'm I not doing something right? I tried applying a layer between the two crawlers I wanted to glue and tried putting a layer on each, letting it dry a little, then sticking them together. What am I doing wrong?!

Ok,, I stick with spirit gum,,, but it has to be fresh, Ive found that it goes bad over time,, NOW is the time to buy it,, at any Halloween shop,,, but youve added the item of also sticking to metal,, try Gorilla Glue,, Ive only used it once,, but it stuck plastic to wood quite well,, so off to Walmart and get some gorilla glue,,,
pick up some spirit gum too,,, it will stick goop to goop,,,
