Hi Metro,

My favorite glue for holding things together is ordinary Elmers Wood Glue. And the favorite thing to hold blocks together until the glue dries, are long plaster board screws that you get from the hardware store.

For tiny pieces of foam glued together, I use sewing pins to hold things.

When using Elmers Wood Glue, one thing to consider is when the glue gets wet, it starts to reverse the gluing process, and the glue gets soft again. Because of this, the foam needs to be coated with something to keep water away from the glue, like epoxy resin or latex paint. Anything that will not attack the foam and also seals the glued surface will work.

Jim.
