      A good PVA glue from a very well known brand, give it a try the next time you see it, it's handy

      Introduction:

      I have always like making things and doing arty type hobbies. I usually end up buying a huge tub of PVA glue from my local craft store, this ends up becoming messy! I also dislike having huge tubs of PVA lying around my flat as they get in the way. When I eventually needed some more glue, I went to the craft shop and spotted this! I was instantly drawn to It has I have used print sticks all my life and thought they were brilliant, seeing as this was a trusted brand I decided to splash the cash on pritt PVA!

      Price:

      For £3.25 I RECIEVED a 135ml bottle of PVA glue. This is not bad value, and seeing as you are paying for a well branded product it's not too expensive.

      Packaging:

      The PVA glue comes in a bottle which stands upside down, this is perfect for getting all of the glue to come out of the tube. To open to tube, you have to cut your own hole in the top which is easy to do and if for any reason the glue dries in the hole you have cut, it's simple to cut a bigger hole. The lid for the glue is a screw top which can be easily opened and closed. The only downside to the screw top is that when you have messy and sticky fingers after using the glue for your arts and crafts, its hard to close the lid back up without getting it sticky too! Overall it is a very sensible packaging solution and I am really happy with the bottle of glue.

      Is it sticky?:

      The glue works really well for general arts and crafts, its good for sticking paper and card together and doing light work. It dries see through which is good and I like how quickly it dries. It's terrible for glueing wood together, but I suppose its not meant to be used for that sort of work. It's easy to squeeze out and I love how easy it is to use. It's a good general purpose glue and I believe it is very good quality.

      Overall:

      I have nothing but good things to say about this PVA glue, the value is ok and the bottle lasts a while. The packaging makes the glue very user friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a spot of arts and crafts in there Spair time! It's useful to have in the cupboard as you never know when you are going to need it, it's great for children who enjoy crafts and also for adults. I am going to be awarding this a 5 star rating as I can't fault it and its value is not an issue. This is available in lots of shops, I got mine from Rymans stationers. The price can vary so shop around for a good deal (look at online prices as they seem to be cheaper)

      Thanks for reading my review, I hope it helped you out a little but. Josh - jlaker1992

      A decent PVA glue for crafts

      I recently bought a bottle of this glue for scrapbooking. Until I saw this in a shop I was never even aware that Pritt made different varieties of glue other than the famous Pritt Sticks so it was the first time I have tried this product.

      This is PVA craft glue but unlike other varieties available it is clear rather than white. It comes in a 135ml tube with a large twistable cap at the bottom. When it is new, the tip of the nozzle needs to be cut off with scissors to create the opening for the glue to come out. The advantage of this is that you can either cut very close to the end and make a small opening, or higher up the nozzle to make a larger opening so more glue can be squeezed out at a time, depending on your own preference.

      The tube is easy to squeeze and because the nozzle is at the bottom the glue will always come straight out when the tube is squeezed so you don't have to shake the tube when it is running low. I have also never had any issues with the nozzle getting blocked.

      I have found the glue to stick well when used on paper, card and photos. It is more difficult to use for papier mache than standard white-coloured PVA as when mixed with water you can only tell if it's the right consistency based on the texture and not the colour. However, it seems to stick just as well. I bought this in Sainsburys for around £2 and you can also get it in Rymans. I will rate this 4 stars as it is a good PVA glue but standard white glue is probably slightly easier to use than this transparent version.

      Pritt stick is a well known brand of glue. It was only recently that i noticed that they have a PVA type glue as well as their well known stick.

      PVA glue I find is very effective when you are trying to stick different materials together. Pritt Stick is all well and good when just using paper but if I am using felt/card/wood etc then I need something stronger and find that PVA glue normally works a treat.

      When I saw Pritt have a take on PVA glue I thought I would give it a go and I'm pleased to say it works very well.

      The glue comes in a white tube which sits upside down. This makes getting the glue out really very easy, other PVA glues you need to turn upside down to use and so when it starts to run out it is difficult to get out. You don't have that problem with this glue.

      It squeezes out well, it is quite thick so you may need to squeeze it but the tube is flexible and easy to do.

      The glue is actually quite fast drying which is good! It works very well, the materials that I stick down stay stuck together and even after a period of time they still are stuck so it is long-lasting.

      It can get a bit messy so if using it with children you will probably want to supervise! It washes off your hands/clothes easily so it's very practical.

      I really rate this and will be buying more.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        There are better glues for general arts and crafts.

        I have an arts and crafts box for my children that I am constantly adding to so that they can dip into it and make stuff whenever they wish. I try to make it as interesting as possible with lots of different types of materials and products, but obviously there also needs to be some staple products that may not be inspiring but are necessities when it comes to arts and crafts. One such product is glue - and I am not loyal to any one brand but tend to buy it based on convenience when I'm out shopping. At present, within the arts and crafts box my children have Pritt PVA Craft Glue which I picked up from Rymans for £1.75 for a 135 ml bottle.

        The Pritt PVA Craft Glue comes in a plastic bottle with a screw top. Getting the glue out is simply a matter of squeezing the bottle and a little bit of glue comes out of the top - although we tend to squirt a little bit out onto some cardboard and then use this. The only negative thing about this bottle is that when you get to the dregs, there is quite a lot of the glue that remains stuck around the inside of the bottle - but I usually cut off the end of the bottle and make sure all of the glue is squeezed out that way.

        The glue is quite thick and gloopy and it can be quite difficult to spread thinly - and therefore it takes quite a long time to dry. We do find that using a plastic scapula is better than a brush to apply the glue because the blush becomes very congealed and therefore it doesn't make spreading the glue any easier! The glue does stick paper and cardboard really well however - and thin pieces of material - but as I said, it does take a while to dry. It is also washable and I think with kids this is really important because they are liable to get it just about everywhere!

        The smell is really strong....that kind of strong fishy smell which really isn't very pleasant and so I always try to keep the room well ventilated when the kids are using it. Overall, I think this glue is fine for arts and crafts, but to be honest there are cheaper and less gloopy glues around which are probably more suitable for general craft use.

        Does what it says on the bottle, its sticks!

        Have you ever found yourself in a sticky situation? Then read on.

        For those kind of moments I usually have a Pritt Stick or two hiding somewhere in the house, as they can come in very handy for various sticky situations. I also keep a tube of Pritt Craft glue for bigger projects as it makes light work of glueing all sorts of stuff. If you are already into crafting and card making then this will be a familier product to you.

        ********************************************************
        There are times when its best to use a Pritt Stick instead of a squeezy tube, but for crafting purposes the bottled/ squeezy tube type glue is sometimes more suited and still gives you a quick and accurate way of sticking stuff.

        I find Pritt Craft Glue is good quality and is long lasting on all kinds of surfaces including paper and cardboard. Its also handy when creating artworks and collages too, handling them with ease.

        The Pritt Craft Glues for kids are also solvent and PVC free and are easily washable if you accidently spill any on fabric or furnishings. If that happens just make sure you mop up as much glue as possible, then clean of the rest immediately with cold water. Glue stained clothing should be soaked in cold water overnight followed by a warm wash (40°C). I would recommend adult supervision if children are using the glue for home work/ artwork projects.

        *********************************************************
        You can even use the glue for wallpaper boarders that have come away from the wall in places, although for a small area I would use a Pritt Stick instead.
        I have used the craft glue when card making and its always stuck well, leaving no residue. I generally find that I don't have to to re stick anything when using this, it works well the first time.

        Ease of use and a good long lasting product are what has made Pritt Glues a world market leader for some of its products and you can see why its still holding its own today.

        The Craft Glue does leave a slightly gluey smell until its dry, but once its 100% dry I don't think any strong lingering smells remain. All this makes it more than suitable and safe for lots of different projects including paper based model making.

        There are cheaper glues that you can buy, but this one is both reliable and safe for children and adults. Though many are similar in terms of usability and glue strength I prefer sticking to this one. I usually pay just a few pounds for this and as its very long lasting I find its worth getting.

        great glue!

        I love art, especially when you make 3d pictures and this glue is a great help. I have been doing art for many years now and one of the biggest problems i come across is what glue to use to stick different items down and so far this pritt craft glue has been the best i have found.

        Firstly, pritt is a great make. It is most commonly known for making great quality gluesticks but not many people know that it makes other types of glue. They pride themselves in great quality at a reasonable price and this glue is no exception it is great quality at a good price.

        Secondly, i love the container it is in. It comes in this really handy squeezy tube which makes it alot easier to apply to your work. However, the only problem is, is that some times glue dries up in the hole the glue comes out from and stops it from coming out. Although this can be easily resolved by pushing a pencil through it.

        Overall, this is a great glue. To be honest the pva inside is pretty standard but what makes this product special is the make and squeezy tube.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        it is a safe product to use.

        I enjoy my Art and craft classes and the week before last our tutor asked us to bring some PVA glue and magazines along with us, he was going to demonstrate the art of collage.
        I had a Pritt stick in the cupboard but I didn't have a drop of PVA glue in the place.
        Our local arts and crafts supplier had Pritt PVA in stock, a 750ml bottle that was marked `Pritt Art Attack` and the bottle was priced at just over £3.50p.

        Pritt Art attack PVA glue comes in a plastic squeezy bottle - like a washing- liquid bottle and it has the same type of top too. Because the bottle has that squeezy top it does make it easy to squirt some of the glue into a saucer.
        Because we were trying our hand at collage the tutor advised us to add some cold water to our Pritt PVA, apparently that makes it easier to work with. The undiluted PVA is thick so we could all see the reason behind his idea.

        I don't know about you but I think that PVA glue just honks ! It has got a weird vinegary smell that seems to go right up your nostrils. The thick white Pritt PVA glue was easy to dilute and then we had to apply it to some cartridge paper and start to add our magazine cuttings to build a picture, once the pieces of magazine were in place then we had to add another layer of PVA glue over the top - this adds a glaze to the surface.
        The tutor had already warned us that we needed to use an old paintbrush because the PVA glue may ruin a decent brush but when the lesson finished and we washed our brushes the Pritt PVA washed out well.
        I had splattered the glue about and my fingers were covered, the glue had dried onto my skin by the time the lesson had finished. I rubbed my fingers together and the Pritt PVA started to bind together, it formed into a `rubber ball` and it was easily peeled away from the skin.
        The collage work was good fun and we all felt like we were schoolgirls again.

        Pritt PVA glue is aimed at sticking lighter things together, it is a good glue for keen scrap bookers and card makers. It is safe for children to use to stick all their little bits and pieces, it will stick glitter, fabric, felt or pasta, or maybe they are busy making their special Christmas cards at the moment.
        PVA glue is very safe to use and it contains no solvents but it should never be taken internally. You can also wash it off clothes and skin fairly easily.

        The collage work that we were doing was only experimental but the Pritt PVA glue held it in place well and the surface of the collage had a slight sheen. Pritt Art Attack PVA glue has a high gloss finish but we had watered it down before we had used it so our work only had a slight sheen.

        In our classroom we were working on Formica topped tables so it was easy to remove the PVA glue, if you were going to use the glue at home I would recommend that you cover your table with newspaper or a plastic sheet before you start, it is quite messy to use.

        The large bottle of glue is going to last me for quite a while so it has to be stored correctly, instructions for storage state that the glue should be kept at room temperature.
        I know The Other Half sometimes adds a drop of PVA glue to a cement mix to make the mortar more watertight, so if he asks nicely he can borrow some of mine !

          The pritt stick's brother isn't too bad

          Prite Craft Glur PVA is the liquid and transparent version of it's sibling - the Pritt Stick!
          It's just as good: Easy to use, nice distinctive packaging, washable and works well.

          So far, this is the only transparent PVA glue that I've come across, it makes it stand out from the crowd a bit and leaves you safe in the knowledge that it definitely WILL dry see-through.
          I find that this glue is perfect for arts and craft, but not for sticking bits of wood together (or whatever you might want to do with it!) because it's not at all heavy-duty. It's great for the kids when they want to get messy and make something, as it will wash off straight away which is very handy.

          However, I have found a downside to this wonderful stuff. When you first open this product, you have to unscrew the cap and snip a hole in the end of the nozzle. The nozzle is rather chunky and you need an adult with a sharp knife/scissors to cut it. I just about managed to cut it off, but I found it was difficult to cut the desired amount off because of the super chunky bit of thick plastic at the very end.
          This led to too much glue coming out of the end when I wanted to use it! Now it means that I have to be very careful when I squeeze some glue out, otherwiseit will just pour out all over the place - well I suppose the glue won't ever get stuck then.
          But, looking on the positive side of it, at least Pritt didn't decide to make the tube stand up the other way - would make it considerably more tricky.

          So there we go, that's what I think about this PVA glue from Pritt. I cannot recall how much it cost, but probably not too much :)
          It's ideal for arts and crafts, nothing more, nothing less.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Handy for little jobs.

          Every Christmas I try and make a real effort when it comes to wrapping the gifts. This year I had a cheap and practical idea for making them look nice and slightly unusual. What I had decided was that I would cut out letters from the different coloured wrapping papers I had and stick them onto the gift itself (once wrapped up of course!) and that way I didn't need tags. Saved money and looked really good even if I do say so myself, well actually most of the people that we gave gifts commented on it as being a brilliant idea.

          After having the idea I knew I needed some glue, even though this was an expense I knew that having some glue in the house would be handy. We ran out and hadn't replaced the last one. So on my shopping list for that week went glue. I had planned on buying the normal Pritt Stick, handy and we all know it is good.

          When I went looking for the glue in my local Asda I noticed this tube of liquid Pritt PVA craft glue and thought it was worth a go. My thinking was that glue is glue and because it is a large tube it will last a long time.

          My idea worked really well and as this glue dries completely clear it didn't show apart from the fact it was a little bit shiny and as the Christmas wrapping paper I used was metallic it didn't show unless you looked really close. Yes I used metallic paper and it even worked on that, I doubt Pritt stick would have. I should point out that I hadn't bought the paper before I got the glue and hadn't even considered the fact it might not stick until I started to glue the letters on.

          This glue has a screw on lid and when you take it off the first time you have to cut a hole in the end of the tube. I found this easy enough with a good pair of scissors. This means that you can cut a very small one like I have or go quite big that way you decide how quickly the glue can be squeezed from the tube.

          This glue isn't suitable for all jobs and it is not heavy duty glue. I have been using it today to try and fix a ceramic lamp and although it will stick the parts together they aren't secure enough for it to stay together so I will have to buy some super glue for that job. The thought of super glue scares me, I will stick my fingers to it or to each other!!!!

          I would recommend this glue especially for children to use because as it is washable if they get it on their clothes you know it is going to come off, also if they get it on anything it will be easy enough to remove. I got it on the desk and it came off easily with a wet cloth.

          For the price this glue is well worth getting, I can't remember the exact price but on the net I have seen it for around the £2 mark for a 135ml tube.
