Default Glitter problems

I am experiencing problems with keeping glitter adhered to my cards. I am using Martha Stewart glitter with her glitter glue. Any suggestions?

Use the Quickie Glue Pen.

And if you want to fix it you can just mist a little bit of air spray over

Have you tried the Heat and Stick powder? Not sure if it would work with that type of glitter.

I have tried hairspray which did not seem to help, but have not tried the heat and stick powder. Do you have to use Versamark with the heat and stick powder of will any"glue" work? Thanks for all the help!

um.. with the heat and stick powder...i think you must use either versamark or stazon inks which stay wet long enough for the powder to stick.

yeah but like Mira said, im also not sure if any glitter works with that asides from the SU! dazzling diamonds, etc

Use the glue pen, the two-way glue pen, or stampin up's crystal effects if you want a 3-D look.

I'm not sure. I've never had a problem when I use SU!'s two way glue pen. The glitter always stays put. I've mostly used SU!'s glitter, but I've used other brands also without a problem. Are you waiting too long to sprinkle on the glitter? Once the two way glue turns from blue to white, it's considered a temporary bond. Try doing one area at a time so the glue doesn't have a chance to start drying. And don't be stingy with the glue. Just a thought. I'm definitely no expert--not even an SU! demonstrator. You also might try the Tombow two way glue. I know SU! carries it, but I think you can buy it at the craft stores too. It may have a stronger bond. I haven't tried it yet. Let me know if it works!!!

I use art glitter glue. I use the clear and my glitter stays on my cards for years. The metal tip is a pain to clean so I put some glue on a piece of wax paper and apply it using a toothpick for ultra fine work .

Just did a little experiment with some adhesives and Martha Stewart glitter. I found the the SU 2-way glue did probably stay the best. Crystal effects also adhered well, but I did not give it time to fully dry. The Martha Stewart Glitter glue with brush applicator in the 4 oz bottle did not work well, but the small tube that comes with the little glitter sets did seem to work some better. I also tried Tombow multi liquid glue (allows for removable or perm application) and it worked okay. So, the results are.........SU 2-way glue adhered the best and the Martha Stewart glitter glue adhered the worst. I do find it interesting that the Martha Stewart glittering glue did not work very well with the Martha Stewart glitter and the SU glue did. I guess just another argument that you get what you pay for!

I was looking for the best way to adhere glitter. Thank you for doing this experiment so I didn't have to.

Default glitter problems on chipboard

hi all! I know this is late in the convo, but I jumped on looking for some help in getting my SU chunky glitter to stay "stuck" to my chipboard. I finally had some sucess... it was a pain, but I like the look in the end: I used the tombow glue from the SU catalog, and actually did two layers, letting it dry really well in between. I found, also, that if I let the glue get a little tacky, the glitter didn't slide around so much. Then, it was lookin' so good, but still dropping little bits of glitter, and I didn't want to have glitter all over the card I was giving away, so I quickly sprayed some Kryon spray on the pieces of chipboard before I adhered it to the cardstock. I am really pleased in the end! Good Luck!

I agree, a big thanks to you experimenters!

BTW, have you seen those multi-packs of MS glitters @ Wally World? Their gorgeous; and now it sure is nice to know how to make them stick. She also sells glue pens to use with her glitter; bought one, but haven't tried it yet. I've had good luck with her glitter glue in other applications.

Sorry for the hijack - now back to your originally-scheduled thread...
