As a dedicated embroiderer of traditional noses, I shall wait for the answer with baited breath!  I'm assuming a wire is baked into the clay?

Hi Paula,

I have to start by saying I love your bears.

In my experience with polymer noses, a really good glue works very well.  You could also put a wire on the backside but that might create pressure on the polymer clay and it could break free.  E6000 glue is very strong glue.  Also Magnatac Glue is iron clad.  I have tested it mysel by really pulling on a  finished, glued-on nose.  They stayed put.

Hope this helps.:D

Thanks Judi

     I was figuring that, but I would have tried the wire in back too- your point on that is well taken.

     By-the-way My honey still can't get over your bears.....this is a good thing.....makes it easier to shop for supplies as I continue the quest.

It took a while for my hubby to see this 'bear thing' as something very worthwhile too.  Now he really enjoys seeing what is next.  Since he is a dairy farmer , I made a very large Queen Cow sitting in a throne.  He has placed her high on a plant shelf in a place of honor.;)
