Video Tip: Glue Stick Handle For Securing Miniatures While Painting

There are many inventive ways to secure a miniature while painting.  Some like to bond the mini to a piece of cardboard while others buy specialty stands to do the trick.  A few years ago, I noticed a pile of left over glue stick scraps in my work area and thought they would work great as temporary painting handles.  Simply heat one side of the glue stick with a lighter and stick it to the bottom of a miniature.  The glue holds strong, but does not chemically bond so the handle is easy to pull off later without leaving any residue.  Adding a base to the glue stick is just as easy, heat and stick.  Check out the video below to see how its done.
