Default glitter glue

I am curious what glitter glue everyone uses. I have tried many and I'm just not having much luck. It seems to be hit and miss. Clearly, I am not using the right glue. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance...

Stickles are my favs and i have found Aleen's Glitter & Gem Glue to be fabulous for loose glitter.

Stickles for sure and if you can, store them upside down. Prevents the tip from clogging and the product is ready to use immediately.

I store mine upside down too. It prevents air bubbles from getting in.

It depends on what I want the glitter glue for. For smaller accents I use Stickles and intensely glittered off brands from Michael's. But sometimes for collage cards and larger mixed media pieces, I want just a light wash of glitter. I use Elmer's glitter glue in larger bottles for that. The colors are true but not intense, and it leaves a nice glossy, subtly glittered finish. Also it's cheap!

Same as LouisaMay for glitter glue. Stickles is acid free if that is important to you. I love Studio G and Elmers.

Lightbulb Oh My Glitter! What a problem and mess it can be!

Years back I loved to add glitter to my project. First, I used a knife and applied a thin coat of glue to the item (such as a punched out heart), shook glitter on then once it was covered I shook the rest off.

What a mess it would make!

Then I found Stickles and other products that had glitter in the glue. Easier, but I still would get it stuck to my fingers and areas I didn't want it.

Then I got a Xyron, sticker maker. Wow, It was a glitter changer.

I place the item I wanted glitter on through the Xyron. The side I wanted to put glitter on, was the side I would run through to get the sticky on. Take off the protective sheet, expose the sticky, place on a paper with a fold( like you would do for embossing). Sprinkle the glitter on it. Use a protective piece of paper, press the glitter, shake and fill areas that didn't get glitter. Remove your glittered item. fold paper, replace unused glitter back into container.


If you want, run it through the Xyron and get the sticky on the other un-glittered side.

Now you can purchase all sizes of Xyron machines, from 1 inch to at least 9 inches wide!

Stickles is one of the rare things that I have "all of them". I have heard good things about the nuvo glitter drops.

I use double sided tape for strips or sheets I can die cut. Elizabeth craft glitter is super fine and works very well with that idea.



If you are a person who likes to match colors....there are some of the distress colors in stickles as they are both Ranger product.

Non clog tip: I bang the bottle on the table straight down when I am done and burp it. (gentle squeeze of air to make sure you are clear) My LSS taught me that one. Esp once you have used some of it. If it is full you could just stick a pin in it instead of squeezing it-but just to clear the tip. Not into the bottle or you will drag it back up into the tip.

I don't use glitter glue so much but I have started using glitter nail polish which is cheap and can be found even in dollar stores.

Queenbeevw, I posted an idea here, using a Xyron "machine". Maybe that will help or the post with using glitter nail polish! I'm going to try that one. Sounds great for small areas.

I love Stickles also, but have some Crayola Glitter Glue, too. It comes in a pack of several different colors and is very inexpensive.

I wasn't sure from the OP if what was wanted was a glitter glue or glue to apply regular glitter. For the former, it is Stickles all the way. I clear the top when finished by banging the bottom on my work table and store them upside down. If it is the latter, I used sticky tape, Xyron covered sheets or Diamond Glaze. I love glitter, but not the mess (which is a lot like crafting flu---it spreads everywhere), so I mostly used stickles. However, lately I have been into the regular glitter for several techniques I'm exploring. Now my house is sparkling! (Not sparkling clean, mind you.)

Jeanne3579, I loved your comment. Maybe instead of Xyron sheets, just get a xyron machine? (nope, I don't work or own stock in Xyron. The machine has just made crafting so easy for me. I use it alot. Even to make removable masks, glitter, removable stencils. Along with making stickers out of intricate die and Cricut cuts)

Sorry I was not clear. By Xyron sheets, I meant sticky sheets made in a Xyron machine. I'm with you. I love, love, love mine!

Love Stickles as well. When I saw the suggestion of storing upside down I decided to make a change, as mine are just in a drawer. Mentioned it to my handy husband and he very quickly took a piece of plywood, drilled holes in it and now I have them all stored upside down in a box. Yay! I'm a happy stamper!

I noticed that @wavejumper had very good tips about 2 comments above this one. Just wanted to let you know, in case you decide to take the "Stickle's plunge" again.
Also, there's another tip about 2-3 comments below this one. I can't remember who wrote that one.

By the way, hello fellow West Virginian! Where are you from? I'm in Berkeley Springs (Eastern Panhandle). 🤗😃😃

The company Art Institute Glitter Inc of Cottonwood AZ makes a glue that started out specifically for glitter, and has been found to be excellent for gluing papers as well. It comes in 2 oz, 4 oz and 8 oz bottles. It’s a bit pricey to start with, BUT it is very economical to use. A little goes a long way. Both the 2 & 4 oz bottles come with a pointed tip that is finer than most others (no cutting of the tip required) and they also sell a very fine pointed metal tip that comes with a stainless steel pin with a round ball head that is put into the tiny opening to keep it sealed during temporary storage. The glue comes in three types: Designer Dries Clear, “Designer Dries White for a more opaque look when using transparent or pearlescent glitter” and Fabric Dries Clear. All forms dry permanently flexible. The label recommends that you “touch tip to surface before squeezing. Glide on surface for smooth, unbroken lines.”
Their website is www.artglitter.com.
I have purchased the product from their website as well as from Amazon.
No, I do not own stock in the company, nor have I been asked to promote the company, nor do remember where or when I first learned about this product. This glue works very well for me. I’ve used it with paper and cardstock.
Hope this information is helpful.

Carolyn
