Hi guys and girls, I am fairly new and am having a problem with glue, I researched and settled on Lepages heavy duty contact cement. I bought a pint and poured some into my glue jar ( home made with a brush sealed thru lid ) after a few days the glue separated with a layer of thin liquid on top, tried mixing it with little success. 

I believe the top and brush are air tight. I tried a small test but it does'nt seem to hold much.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Terry

I once used a clear jar for Weldwood contact cement and had a similar problem.  Now I use a brown jar and no problem.  I figured it doesn't do well with light.

Thanks for your replies, the clear jar might be the problem.

Separation in light suggests bacterial degradation. Try ensuring your bottle's thoroughly cleaned - I have an Instant Pot cooker which is all but an autoclave in steam mode.

LOL!  I was trying to think of what else I could do with our paperweight!   All I ever made with it is soups and well... that got boring after awhile.
