I made a list of “Best Rubber Cement”.
Rubber cement has a pliable, non-sturdy bond that can be pulled apart easily, unlike the super glue or G-S Hypo Cement, which creates a stiff and sturdy bond, dries clear, and is effective for bonding different materials together.
#1 Barge Cement
Initially, I bought Barge Cement for a foam armor costume, and it worked like a charm for that purpose. But then, I had a shoe break, and I decided to give it a try for that too. Surprisingly, it worked just as well for repairing shoes. The key is to follow the instructions precisely. It’s important to note that this glue is a type of rubber cement, which means it adheres to itself after drying. So, the proper application is to apply a coat to both pieces, let it dry, and then affix them together. It’s different from traditional glue, where you let the glue dry with the pieces touching.
#2 Elmer’s Rubber Cement
As for its performance, rubber cement works exceptionally well. What sets it apart is the ability to remove and reposition items even after it dries. Surprisingly, I also found another use for it. It works wonders on scars! By brushing some over a recessed scar and letting it dry, I could then apply makeup, and the scar would blend away seamlessly, thanks to the flush surface it creates.
