Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue
Advantages: Easy to use, dries quickly
I mentioned in a previous review that in my spare time I create handmade wooden plaques and to add texture and design there are always little items needed to help give them a little extra whether I use buttons, fimo models and glitter. Since using the Rangers Ink Liquid Pearls I looked into the Rangers Ink range a lot more only to discover a crafters candy shop and of course I couldn't resist purchasing a few new items!
One of those new items were the Rangers Ink Stickles Glitter Glue. I have used other glitter glues (and still do now and then) but have had varied results but considering how well the Liquid Pearls were I thought it was worthwhile giving them a go. Rangers Ink is a US based craft company who create a whole host of crafting items but despite being across the pond their items are stocked in stores and websites nationwide so easy to get hold of.
What is it?
Rangers Ink Stickles Glitter Glue is simply a clear glue filled with coloured glitter. It really as simple and as easy as that! The Stickles Glitter Glue range come in 36 different shades all of which are very varied from the softer pastel shades to the deeper hues.
The glitter glue come in small 5oz plastic, easy to squeeze bottles which have a small thin spout which is covered by a plastic screw on top. The bottles are clear so you can clearly see the colour of the glitter. The Stickles logo is on the front together with the product information on the one side of the bottle.
To use the glitter glue you simply need to unscrew the top and carefully squeeze the bottle until the glitter glue comes out. It has been designed to be used on most materials such as paper, card and even candles! Because of the thin spout they are supposedly easy to write with as well as make dots and dashes.
I personally use the glitter glue on card when embellishing my daughter's photo scrapbooks and of course my wooden plaques. I do myself find it hard to write with the Stickles Glitter Glue so I prefer to use it to create lines, dots and dashes. I find that despite the difference in the two materials the glitter glue does exactly the same job.
The glitter glue I find doesn't take long to set completely and although I try and keep my dots and dashes as small as possible I find that when drying it does expand ever so slightly so you do need to be careful when you use it as to not squeeze too much out as the design you are wanting could be easily ruined. It is definitely too easy to waste the product as it can come out of the spout quickly so you cannot be too heavy handed.
The one thing I do like though is that the colour of the glitter remains instead of getting a sparse glitter that you can sometimes get with glitter glues, the Rangers Ink version provides a lovely bright colour so you don't need to re-apply to build up the colour. It doesn't take long to set about 30 minutes which I find is more than adequate as I only use it to add a finishing touch to my items.
Finally, one glitter glue that provides a good amount of glitter and colour within one application. It dries quickly and gives a lovely effect to any project. A must have item for a keen scrapbooker or someone who just likes to embellish their own craft projects.
