In the crafting industry there is always a use for different types of adhesives. Wood glues, spray glue, epoxies, stick glue, white glue, fabric glue, paper dots, tape runners, glitter glue, clear glue, hot glue….who knew there were so many glues? So what do I use?
I use E6000 for working with jewelry and wood glue for my wooden projects such as plaques.
For card making I have found that certain adhesives work better than others. For attaching paper to paper, a tape runner works the best, I found that glue sticks and spray glue (both temporary and permanent) tended to dry out after a period of time went by. Clear liquid glue works wonderfully for things like cardstock and small pieces that are too small for a tape runner. Gluing on rhinestones and jewels with liquid glue however, doesn’t work. They pop off. I have a glossy accents glue that adheres them so they stay on. It’s quite embarrassing to have things fall apart after you make them.
Trial and error is a hard master but a good teacher.
