My husband picked up this Arrow MT300 mini glue gun and http://smile.amazon.com/Arrow Fastener MG24-4 4-Inch All Purpose Mini Glue Sticks (24-Pack) at Home Depot and I have to say that I am impressed with how easy it was. And best of all it has created an extremely strong bond. Seashells aren't heavy by any means, but some are large (4") and are only glued on narrow edges. For example:
I had most of the shells I needed, collected on vacations. But I wanted to add some more large ones so I ordered these from Amazon Harold Imports S/4 Natural 4" Baking Shells and they are 4 or 5 ounces each. Rather than attaching them with the inside facing out, I placed them down so they are only glued along the thin edge shown in the picture. I've had the frame standing vertically for several days and nothing has fallen off yet.
(My husband said, "Wouldn't it be funny if we get it up on the wall and they all just fell off?" No, it wouldn't.)
In addition, I used silk rope and plastic "pearls" to trim the edge of the frame and while the glue was hot, it wasn't hot enough to melt or warp them. Of course, I did manage to burn myself with hot glue several times (some of those shells are tiny) but never severely enough to blister. It hurt though and I certainly wouldn't let a child use this.
The gun was easy to use. I was afraid my hands would cramp from the constant use but the trigger is easy and the size of the gun fits my hand perfectly.
I didn't use the built in stand other than to see if it worked- it did. But since I was working around a large table I attached a heavy extension cord which pulled the gun over if I tried to stand it up.
Maybe if I were more experienced with glue guns I would find more fault with this, but as far as I'm concerned this little gem made it possible for me to create exactly what I wanted for a grand total of $75 including the big mirror. I love it.
The one I got was the mt300 (orange and gray though). The trigger didn't work well with only tiny beads and a small string of glue coming out of the nozzle
on each trigger pull. It didn't grab the glue sticks well and made many tiny notches in it before it would feed. So to temporarily use it I had to push the glue in manually -
but the barrel gets extremely hot so it was really not fun.
I hate this glue gun.
