Let's Talk Glue!

Let's talk glue for a bit. There are all kinds of glue out there but I'll boil it down to glue for papercrafting so this won't be a post that takes 5 days, 7 hours, 38 minutes and 23 seconds to discuss.

My favorite glue for years has been the Scotch Quick Dry, which I believe they now call Scotch Quick Drying Tacky Adhesive *okie often wonders why a company will change the names on products or if they change the product so they have to change the name* and I still love that glue BUT...yeah, there is always a but isn't there! BUT...they changed the tip and it is a bigger hole than the older bottles. I find that very irritating! Luckily, I kept my tips from older bottles so when I have to buy another bottle I can just screw it on the new bottle and have a finer tip. I do have problems with this clogging up in my FINELINE APPLICATOR because it does dry so fast.


Now let me tell you about a new glue that I have started using...Art Glitter Glue. The owner at my local scrapbook store told me about this one when I went in to get a bottle of the Scotch Quick Dry, or Scotch Quick Drying Tacky Adhesive, and she said she recommended it and buys it by the gallon for her use. Of course she owns the store and does a lot of projects for customers so I figured the Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue 8 ounce (Flat Cap) Refill Bottle she had would work just fine for my needs and I bought a bottle. She also had the Art Institute Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 2-Ounce bottles but you know me...GO BIG OR GO HOME!


Now I will say this can clog up in the Fineline Applicator if I leave the cap off for too long but not nearly as fast as the Scotch Quick Dry and I also found that I can take the tips off my Fineline Applicators and soak them in water overnight and blow out the water and POOF, good as new! 

This is the glue I have been using for the last two months or so and I really am loving it! I used it when I did the Woodland Santa Project and it was awesome that I could leave the cap off the FL applicator longer as it was a tedious project and I can't even imagine trying to use the regular Scotch Dry tip for that project. 

After my Run to Get the Scissors post I got accused of being an enabler and being a bad influence but I have to argue this since I only give my honest opinions about products and like to share my thoughts. At no time do I twist anyone's arm to purchase...although I do make STRONG SUGGESTIONS! Oh and to my dear friend Bethany....BUY YA SOME OF THIS GLUE GIRL! YOU WILL THANK ME LATER!

Oh and I love it so much that I am going to pick up a bottle and take it to Houston with me in two weeks so my friend Carmen can have some!

  1. I hate that they changed the tip on the Scotch glue too. I'll have to give this one a try :)

  5. I have been using this glue for a long time. I love it! I finally bought a large bottle for refilling my 2oz one. Running out of this glue is not a good thing!

  6. I've never heard of this glue before either. Is the name "Art Glitter" a brand name? Or is it some type of glitter glue? If it dries clear, and you recommend it ... I think I'll try it out. I like how quickly the Scotch Quick Dry dries (or whatever that glue is called now). Is the drying time somewhat similar with this one?

  7. The bigger bottle would be nice to even fill you old scotch quick dry bottles.
    Do you know if this is at Michael’s or HL?
