What Really Is The BEST Glue To Use?

Hi everyone, as promised here are all 16 of the glues I featured and spoke about in my video I shared earlier today.

It was really interesting testing all these glues and it gave me a chance to really see what they can do and how they work.

All of the glues I have all work well, and there is a place for them all. They all have different properties and can be used in many ways.

Below I’ve listed them all in the order I swatched them, and I’ve attached links to the best prices where possible.

Since testing all the glues, I’ve come to the conclusion that the precision tip makes a lot of difference. I do believe that some of the other glues I have will work very well if they had the metal nibs, and I’ve since decanted some of them into smaller bottles and they work very well. The key is to only add a small amount of glue!

My favourite glues to use are the Collall Multi-Purpose, Tombow, Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Dawn Bibby & Art Glitter glue.

I also like the Dovecraft Acrylic Glue, Tesa Glue, Stampin Up Fine Glue Pen & the Nuvo Pen as these I found good techniques and adding dimension and shine to your projects.

Check out my video below for a more detailed look at all the glues.

I also want to try the Nuvo Deluxe glue as this is one many of you have recommended it.

Let me know if you use any other glues that I haven’t featured so that maybe I can give them a try.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Do you know of any good glues that dry matte? I have some Multi Matte Medium (Ranger) and it works, until it doesn’t. The little bottles clog every time you use them, and you can get a big jar to refill the little bottles but it’s impossible to do without making a mess.

  2. I have been having really good luck with the Tonic Crafty Glue in the small 60 ml size. I keep it upside down in a double jigger glass and the nozzle has been behaving so far. Bought two of the big 60 ml size thinking they were the small, so I have a LOT of it now. It’s horribly expensive on Amazon for me in USA, like $9.00 for one 2 oz. (I have Prime so free shipping). I found it on – 2 of the 120 ml size + shipping for $7.00!!!! xoxox
