I've always had a love of creating things, from scrapbooks to crafts, to photo frames and collages. But I've always either used a small piece of cardboard or an old paint brush to spread glue. It's almost always never gone right. The glue has gone everywhere and made a mess and a much trickier job than what it meant to be. However i then remembered something i used to use in primary school to spread glue... Glue spreaders.
I had a look around online and found Galt glue spreaders (Pack of 10) on ebay for £4.99, so i gave them a try. After receiving them they were securely kept in a plastic packet to stop them from moving around in their packaging and protecting them from damage. After removing them i gave one a try.
I normally use just standard PVA glue, maybe with some water depending on what project I am working on. But with the paint brush and cardboard methods i have been using I have found that the glue doesn't spread evenly and creates bumps under the mediums i am trying to glue. However i first tried using these on some photographs in a book... I was amazed at how easy they spread the glue and with so much easy. When using them, it's almost the same as using a paint brush except without the messy and tricky cleaning up afterwards.
Another point i noticed was how strong and lasting the glue sticks were. Because they are made from plastic they are very tough and resistant. Also because the spreading part of the stick is flexible plastic its very durable. I've been using them for a few weeks now and they are still as strong as they were when I first bought them. Even though at first i thought they would break or snap during first use but they didn't. They handle very well under pressure and i have yet to have any problems.
Finally if you like to wash all your instruments after use or feel that you need to wash your glue stick, because they are flat and soft. There is no having to scrub over and over again to try and clean these. One quick wipe with some soap and it's done with minimal fuss or hassle.
These are perfect for all ages from young children to adults. These are perfect for any types of arts or crafting you might do whether it's as a hobby or during school. If kids are using these i will say these are VERY child friendly however adult supervision i would recommend when young kids are crafting.
Summary: Perfect for crafting or art, saves so many problems...Highly Recommended!!
