Glue it Tuesday: Week 23
Thought I'd open the lounge today for a little adhesive discussion :) What are your faves? Mine are:
Glue Stick: UHU (which I can no longer find at Michaels! what happened?).
Glue Bottle: Can I say it? Good old Elmer's. If only they'd invent a lid that wouldn't freeze open halfway through the bottle.
Decoupage: Me love Golden Gel Medium (Matte -- not a Gloss Girl.) Mod Podge too. There's something about a piece sealed with decoupage glue that makes it seem so... official. (maybe because it cannot be undone.)
Tape (washi aside, of course): Mr. Tapey (the 3M ATG 752) and I have been inseparable for the past eight years. No mess. An absolute must have for paper crafters who do lots of piecework and don't want to deal with buckling and drying. I get the tape from United Manufacturers though I'm sure it can be found elsewhere too! It is very, very thin and super strong and so much cheaper in the long run than buying rolls of double stick tape.
Washi is still in customs hell -- I sit by the window, wistfully, peeking out behind the curtains for the trucker to show up. It is just as well that the stuff hasn't arrived -- in the span of the past two days, the water heater has broken, I pulled a door out of the wall, my daughter's orthodontic-thing (some monstrous device with hinges) went to pieces, one kid jammed up my printer, another rearranged our closets so that my husband had dresses on his side and I had dress shirts on mine (and she carefully folded all of our dirty clothes and put them away with the clean ones), both kids somehow disabled my computer speakers, and I cannot find the top of the food processor.
(Happy Gluesday! :))
