If model plane glue works, has anyone tried acetone? I use it for gluing guitar bindings either raw or by dissolving the plastic in it to make a paste.

Update lol
If you bond tpe together make sure be no force that will pull parts apart .
I pulled two pieces apart with force .
So on a doll poly be ok on certain areas .
Just experiment .

Be careful using acetone. I have tried it to try and remove stains. Not only it did not remove the stain, but it made the skin rough. I don't know if it was melting it or if was more like dissolving it. I don't think you could use it for bonding TPE back together.

The thing with poly glue is it is a solvent. It's designed to melt polystyrene used to make model kits and break down the chemical bonds so that when the solvent part of the glue has evaporated, the the melted areas for new bonds.

To fix Agnes' nails back on I used Super Glue which hasn't melted the TPE. The original Loctite glue comes now in a range of dispensers including one with a thin hollow needle for more precise gluing for often less than 4

May you can use half half aceton/alcohol(or isopropanol)

not so aggressive to plastic.
