Fine Tip Glue Applicators – By Anne Peak

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 – and no, I am not on commission!

Thanks for that. Just ordered mine!

I quite agree Helen - I wouldn't be without mine for crafting, it is so much more precise than a glue bottle and I never get on with glue pens.

How do you clean them if they get clagged up,thanks Georginaxx

They don't really get clogged up, that's why the pin is so brilliant - its coated in something that stops it rusting. If it does clog up .... just run it under the tap
