This is an opportunity for release into the market of a brand of glue which is in some way imbued with cultural/human meaning, such that once applied to an object it is infused with additional artistic merit.

It might be made from the combined tears/ eyelashes/ spines of repressed masses, and/or overlooked/self-promoting artists.

Here's an object that might benefit from a bit of glue http://www.bbc.co.u...-us-canada-26233909

       Horses are quite imbued. Could it not be made by boiling them up instead?
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 18 2014
  

       I don't think it actually matters what you boil up - as long as you concoct some form of narrative that does some imbuing.
Zeuxis, Feb 18 2014
  

       If it's going to be applied to an object, wouldn't some sort of varnish be better?   

       Polyurethane varnish is composed largely of atoms born in the death throes of long-dead stars. It should imbue nicely.
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 18 2014
  

       Perfect, and in many ways isn't varnish just a kind of glue that reflects our inner selves? Plus, it facilitates polishing in items that might be otherwise unpolishable.

       Any specific objects in mind, [Zeuxis]?

       I have just glued a third-eye onto my forehead.

       Oops. Try soaking it in warm soapy water and gently prising it off with the handle of a teaspoon.

       How about cheese with these Properties? Because in my life I find myself more often in need of cheese than of glue.

       [Rayford] aha yes! See link ^^^   

       This is why I was initially thinking of glue - so that repairs could be made invisibly - but repairs nonetheless that make more out of an object than it once was.   

       [bungsleep] sometimes cheese is indeed more appropriate - maybe a range of products could be presented, one of which could contain vast kitsch- overloading quantities of real processed cheese flavour.

       //spines of repressed masses//   

       Run-over hedgehogs?

       I was more inferring a scatological reference about some specific unpolishable items...
