Default Foam Filler?

I heard Gorilla glue and Elmer's will make new foam. What's the story? Why do you need Elmer's?

Gorilla glue foams when it "kicks". Liquid makes it kick. You can use water. Elmer's is often used as an additional glue.
Sumo glue will do the same. It is whiter (cosmetically often nicer with foam) but doesn't foam up quite as much.

Thats a neet idea Gorilla glue and white glue, Here is something else that works great, Mix some lite weight spackle and epoxy together, 6 parts spackle to 1 part epoxy, works great, and it wont expand on you, Take care, Chellie
