How does elmer glue works?
Elmer's glue works by soaking into the porous parts of objects it is applied on. (so the more porous the item is the better your joint will be) When it's in place, it's 'carrier solvent' starts to dry out and the glue achieves a better bond. When it's totally dry you have a good joint, yet one that can still come apart in water.
