What is your favorite glue? And your favorite tool?
Audrey from CT
Two very tough questions for me to answer, Audrey, since I do such a wide variety of crafts I tend to use a few specialty glues. If I could only have one glue in my toolbox it would have to be Aleene’s Tacky Glue. It’s the first craft glue I ever used and it never fails. If you need a thicker glue, just remove the top for a few minutes and the glue gets even tackier. If you need a thinner glue all you have to do it add a few drops of water. I could talk about glue all day long since I do believe you need to use the right glue for specific jobs in crafting such as when working with wood, a wood glue really is the best bond or if working with fabric, it’s best to use a fabric glue for the best results.
As for my favorite tool… I’d have to say sharp scissors since I do so much hand cutting, but I also never craft without a pair of fine tipped tweezers. I need as much help as possible placing items and tweezers are my best friends. I’m a bit of a tool geek, I love tools and tend to collect anything new that comes out. Great questions! Thanks.
