Filling the PVA bottles!

The PVA that we get is very gluggy and hard to our into the little bottles that we use in class. I mix the PVA with water to make it into a runnier consistency that pours more easily.

To fill 5-6 small bottles: mix 2/3 cup PVA with 1/3 cup of water in a jug with a pouring lip. 
Pour carefully into the little bottles. Keep the lids off until you are sure that any PVA on the rim is dry ( or next time you want to remove the lid you may find it is stuck in place!)

After the class has used the small bottles I always give each bottle a little squeeze to puff any glue from out of the exit hole so that it is not blocked the next time somebody wishes to use it.
