Re: temperature, make sure you read the instructions for whatever adhesive you're using. It should have recommended/ideal temperatures listed on it.

As a general rule, I've found that most adhesives won't set-up or cure properly below 10°C (about 50°F) or so, although that can vary depending on the type or brand of adhesive. It's probably best to glue things at room temperature (about 20-23°C) whenever possible.

In one shop where I worked the heat would be kept off overnight. When we came in the morning during winter the place would be 10-15°C. Everything always seemed to set-up better after an hour or two once the place had a chance to heat up again.

1 inch is standard for mascots, now l200 heat gunned together if your glue is giving you trouble. Heat the seams until soft wear gloves and press together.

I was thinking more about gluing a relatively small object/form with 1" but that's a really good suggestion. For curved forms sometimes I will use heat to pre-shape the pieces before they're glued together so they are less likely to pull apart.

Its challenging to heat form but the results are nice.
