Sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.
Sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.
Sticks to almost anything
Sugru forms a strong bond to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.
Air cures at room temperature
Sugru is like modelling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air.
The sugru gallery - this place belongs to you! This is where we publish the best of the fixes, mods, hacks and improvements sent to us by sugru users every month. Whether you're a pro, or just getting started, share your projects with us — you might even win some free sugru!
Decorate your birdfeeder
I found a humming bird feeder that was cheap because its flowers were missing. All it needed was some sugru and bits of sea shells from the beach. First I sorted out and arranged shell pieces, then applied them to a tiny doughnut shaped piece of sugru. My top tip at this point is to put the sugru on a small piece of foil so it can be peeled off later. Set the shells firmly into the sugru, wait a minute, then lift everything up and remove the backing and apply to the feeder. Fiddle with them to make sure they look good and don't fall off before they dry. I used a pencil to keep the holes open to the correct width. Prop up the shells as you go. I let them dry for two days before hanging outside. Merrilee, Florida
