Sonya asked in the “ChatBox” what glue we are all using to stick clear gems. I use a DIY PVA, bought from hardware stall at a local market – it’s more economical to buy a large bottle and then decant it – and as it not a “craft” glue, I always imagine its a bit stronger !
But the one gluing tool I couldn’t be without is this – Anne Peak’s Fine Tip Glue Applicator – they are BRILLIANT!
I have two on my desk and just couldn’t craft without them. They apply a 1/2mm line or dot of glue, which means you can really work in fine detail and mean you don’t get great big blobs of glue on you work. The bottles cost £3.25 each – but will last forever.
You need to buy a few specially coated pins that fit in the nozzle and stop it getting bunged up. These cost 25p each, and I tend to get a few at a time as spares.
For more details got to http://www.finetip.co.uk/ – and no, I am not on commission!
