- Surgical tubing, elastic bands, old bicycle tubes, all make excellent
clamping materials because they tighten upon themselves, and they
wrap around irregular shapes without causing damage.
- Clothes pins are good for light positioning of small objects.
- An overall even weight is often ideal for clamping, but make sure
that you don't glue your objects to what you are pressing them with.
Wax paper is good for protecting against unwanted adherence.
Plastic wrap doesn't allow enough air circulation.
- Duct tape is a good way of holding something in place while your
glue is drying.
