I am hoping someone can help me with this. I saw some previous posts about contact cement safety, and someone even mentioned that they use it with felt (putting felt in drawers). I helped make a mask for my son’s Halloween costume, using DAP contact cement to glue the felt together with other materials. (It covered over plastic and duct tape if that matters.)
It has been finished since Tuesday evening, and it’d now Friday evening, and the mask STILL smells icky. I don’t want to send him out breathing glue fumes, of course, and I was thinking the cement would be dry in three DAYS. Is there anything I can do to dry it faster? Would a hair dryer help or hurt (or start a fire?!?)
Is the residue smell harmful? Or should all the solvents/dangerous things have evaporated by now?
I’m a complete novice at crafts.
Thank you for ANY help.
