Is this the right Super Glue Gel for gluing moss to stuff?


(So sorry if we're not supposed to post Amazon links)

http://www.amazon.com/Super-Glue-Cor...super+glue+gel

Is this the glue that is safe to use to glue moss to stuff? I have stones that need covering.

Thanks

Dunno about that brand but if you look at the label on the back, it should have Ethyl cyanoacrylate.

It's fine as long as the active ingredient is cyanoacrylate (I'm not seeing what the active ingredient is in that link).

The gel version tends to be easier to work with, but the regular kind works too.

I honestly couldn't tell you what brands I've used and they've all worked equally well with no problems aside from the usual stuck fingers and--memorably--one nosy cat who ended up with xmas moss glued to his nose for a couple days.

Thanks guys. The glue came today and well, I should have had someone with motor skills glue the moss on..One tube got me through a small piece of mopani and the top of a small stone. It looks alright from far away though!
