Subject says it all... I'm at my third shoe that breaks on me when I put the heel on...
I only have 36 hours until delivery and need to assemble the new shoe with the heel and paint it...
So I need the shoe dry fast!

I've read the oven light trick, the big fan thing and the food dehydrator (that I dont own)

What can you tell me that will work?

I've had the best luck with putting a fan blowing directly on it

Got tylose or CMC?

I haven't done a shoe but I had a (4in x 3in) flag break about 3 hours prior to delivery and I remade it (30ish minutes) and it dried enough to stay upright by delivery time.
