Glitter Glue For Crafters

Glitter glue has become an essential for all types of crafters. From Christmas decorations to scrapbook pages, to greeting cards, it’s been the go-to for everything creative. There are a myriad of possibilities when it comes down with glitter glue.

The name itself suggests that glitter glue is a form of glitter that has been suspended within liquid glue. Since glitter is suspended in the glue, products such as Stickles as well as Nuvo Drops could be translucent or opaque.

It is available in plastic bottles and comes in various colors. The bottles usually come with nozzle tips which allow you to obtain the exact amount of product that you require.

The smaller containers of glue may be called Stickles along with the larger glitter glues that look like the ones from Elmer’s. I have found that larger bottles have a smaller quantity of glitter inside the glue. But, all glues are extremely beneficial, based on the application and substrate you’re applying it to.

Elmer’s glitter glue can be washed and is not recommended to use on photographs as well as metallic surfaces submerged surfaces, or heated surfaces.

Wholesale glitter glue is simple (and secure) to apply on many different types of surfaces, like chipboard, wood, paper canvas, and much more!

There are also glitter tubes glue that are sold in sets. The tubes are equipped with tiny nozzles that are attached to them.

You can also buy glitter glue with larger sizes. These bottles are larger and have larger nozzles and are priced more per ounce.

If you are using glitter glue that has transparent white surfaces, my best idea is to apply a dab on onto the top using a small amount of glitter glue, then dry. So you can be able to see the appearance of the color when it is dry.

Glitter Time to Dry Glue

Glitter glues actually, require some drying time. Depending on the humidity in your area of work and the strength of your glitter glue could be as long as for a night.

Even if you’re inclined to grab the heater to speed up the process do not. A lot of the heat needed to speedily dry Stickles and Nuvo Drops will cause burning of the glitter. The same thing can lead to bubbling in the glue carrier. Worst case scenario, you might burn your project.
