and trying not to drown

So, there I am, super gluing tiny photos to my blank Italian charms. And it isn't going well. The photos want to curl, preventing them from making good contact with the bottom of the charm, which means I have to press down on the photo until it bonds. The glue is taking a long time to dry. Seeing as if I get some on my fingers it drys almost instantly, but it doesn't when I'm trying to bond photo paper to metal, I figure this must be due to the materials, not the glue. I decide to read the directions, just in case they contain something relevant. What the heck does Give a slight moisture onto the wild surfaces when difficult to bond mean?

Wild surface means they've seen your photos.

Put a drop of water on the metal bracelet, then wipe it off, then glue. Or it might be better to put the drop of water on the back of the photo, then the glue on the metal, then the photo to the glue.

Superglue works by chemically reacting with water. Generally there's enough moisture in the air, or the stuff you're gluing is porous and has some moisture in it.

I think it has something to do with rain on the prairies and plains through which wild horses run. I'm not altogether sure why you need to superglue wild horses, but I'll pay money to watch you try!
