Title: ADVICE ABOUT GLUES
Post by: jeanb on December 31, 2017, 03:44:47 pm
Hi,

What glue do you all use and recommend.   I have heard that TOMBO  mono liquid is very good but it doesn't seem to be sold by many craft stores.

Thanks.   jeanb x

My go to is UHU, and I get it in Poundland. It does a great job for most things and goes a long way. It takes a few minutes to be secure.

I use Anita's tacky white pva glue. It dries clear. I usually put it into a small bottle with a fine tip nozzle. A little goes a long way. I also use it for 'embossing' elements on my cards. Just coat the bit of design you want embossed in the glue and leave to dry - gives a nice shiny image.

I use Tacky Glue from Hobby Craft. It was buy two get one free quite a few years ago.  Like Pam, I also put it into a fine tip bottle.

Can I ask where do you buy the little  bottles and fine nozzles from please. I usually use Collal photo glue but could really do with something with a fine nozzle for adding smaller bits and greetings.

Rene, we used to buy them from a company that has now stopped trading.  I've tried other fine nozzled bottles (Fineline) but they aren't as good and they clogged up and wouldn't unclog.  Maybe my tacky glue is too viscous?

Just been googling and these have excellent reviews, maybe I'll order some and give them a try. :)

I use Anita's white pva tacky glue and use the same fine tip nozzle bottles as Lynn does.  Thanks for that link, Lynn - I will save it in case of need in the future.  I also use Dufex photo glue which is great if you want time to re position things.

Thank you Lynn and Jennie I will order some. Daft question, do you fill it up or just put a little in at a time just asking as I don't make cards every week.

I fill mine to at least half way, but the vital thing is to store it upside down, so the nozzle never dries out.  I keep mine in a small glass jar.
