Default Glue help please

I'm looking for a glue that doesn't clump, that dries clear, and is easy to remove from my fingers. Does such a thing exist??? So far I've tried Dovecraft Crafters Glue, Aleen's Paper Glaze, Tombow Mono Liquid Glue, and one other (can't remember the name). I was gluing some sequins on a card and they all popped off as I put it in the envelope!
Thanks for any advice.

My favorite glue has been the Nuvo Deluxe. I can get a really thin line for intricate dies, it dries clear matte, the tip doesn’t clog up, and a bottle lasts a long time.

would glue dots work? ( I do not use sequins much) so, it would depend on the size/opacity I am guessing but, they are not liquid. they hold everything I want them to ( I buy them in three sizes)
just a thought.

I always use my Pinflair gel glue for adding sequins. It’s like a silicone glue but it doesn’t have the horrible smell. Decoupage people use it to create space between their layers and indeed I use it instead of foam pads when I want to add an element that’s slightly popped up on a card. It does take time to fully “cure” but it will stick metal embellishments etc as well as sequins, it has some flexibility when dry so stuff doesn’t just pop off when you curve the card it’s on.

I don’t think it’s widely available in the US but it’s fairly easy to find on our side of the Pond, Jane.

Nuvo Deluxe is the best I've ever used. Before I found it I think I tried every brand out there. Now I always have a spare waiting in the wings.

Amazon has it -- https://www.amazon.com/Pinflair-Disp.../dp/B001QLYKSU
... as well as Tonic Studios Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
Maybe someone will do a side-by-side comparison for us!

I've been using the Bearly Art glue for quite a while - it does not clump, dries matte, and easy cleanup - but I haven't tried using it with sequins.

Another vote for barely art glue but haven't tried on sequins either.

Here's a third vote for bearly art glue. I know a lot of people also like GinaK's connect glue.

I have, relatively recently, been introduced to the Nuvo Deluxe as well, and I've been quite happy with it. I would have to say that, at least so far, it's been the best one I've found.

I use Elmer's School Glue. Inexpensive. Dries clear. And does not leave a mess behind.

For sequins I make my own glue dots. Use Aleene's Tack It Over and Over. Drop small drops
on sticker-release paper and let it dry overnight. Lot cheaper than purchased Glue Dots and they work better.

For sequins: Glue Dots Micro dots ⅛”. Easy and never a mail issue. I can’t live without Glue Dots, including 3/16” and ⅜” Ultra-thin.

Maple Leaf Gina K Connect

I swear by Gina K's Connect glue. You don't need a lot. It has a slightly longer dry time that allows you to slide your paper into the exact spot you want it. It is amazing for sticking down sequins and rhinestones. Just put a small dab where you want to put your embellishment and then place the embellishment down. It dries clear and is not messy at all as it comes in a pen style container. Gina K also just released a new larger size bottle and pin point small bottles to pour the larger bottle into. What a game changer. I have seen on her lives use the new pin point bottle and the tiniest amount of glue comes out. Super for fine die cut words or tiny sequins or rhinestones. Gina K Connect glue gets my vote over all the others I have tried, including Art Glitter, Tombow and Nuvo.

I use Art Glitter Glue for gluing on sequins. I use a tiny drop for each sequin...seems to work really well. I've never had a sequin pop off.

I have been using Lineco Neutral PH glue for several years now. I think I saw it on Jennifer McGuire's channel. I love it and buy it from Dick Blick. The 8 oz bottle lasts me a long time and is only about $6. I have small fine tip bottles I refill as needed. I don't use sequins either but it has never failed me for every other thing I use it on.

I use Golden Gel Medium (matte). it dries clear and doesn't show if you add a little too much. It doesn't clump (it is used as a collage medium). Because of the way I dispense, I almost never get any on my fingers. It is very cost effective when compared to other glues available.

To dispense it, I use products made by Jensen Global, which I purchase from Howard Electronics:

2-oz Boston Round bottles which are easy to squeeze, which is a big plus if you have hand issues and as you get older. They come with luer lock caps. Minimum order is 10 bottles ($11.90)

16-gauge stainless steel needles which have the attachments for the luer lock caps. Mini order is 50 needles ($13.00)

16-gauge Scabbards (needle covers) which seal to keep your glue from drying out. Min order 50 scabbards ($8.50)

If you have ten people go in together, it will only cost $3 - $4, and each person will have 1 bottle, 10 needles and 10 scabbards.

My glue problems have been solved for a long time. I'm not in any way connected to Howard Electronics; I'm just a very happy customer!

(ETA: I can give specifics on these items if anyone is interested.)
