Default Zeroing on two glues-Art Glitter and Bearly

We had a nice big discussion glues and adhesives before.

I would like to just zero in on two glues: Art Glitter and the Bearly. I have been seeing both on all kinds of demos for techniques or products...the person does not mention the glue. I just noticed it.

This seems like a good comparison vid:


Very few differences-what I saw mostly:

Art does glass and cardboard-the other does fabric and something. Fabric for me is good for ribbons.
Art cant be shipped in winter.
You can store with a pin-they both have needle tip options.
Art can be gotten in a huge gallon refill but I would never do that. It has a 1 year exp time was mentioned-does it have a exp date on it?
Art has a CA cancer warning on it.

What I think I am seeing in discussions about the two is Art dries faster-which is both good and bad. Some people like wiggle time. I am thinking wiggle is nice but if it dries shiny it could show.

What do you guys think??

I finally bit the bullet and found the Bearly Art glue on amazon and i love it. I have had for about 2 weeks and it hasn't clogged up at all. I just leave the pin in it when not in use. Easy peasy!!

I use the Art and it dried both clear and matt. No shine at all. I've been using it for a few months now and haven't had problems with it clogging. I do keep a pin in it, as recommended.

I have both, just recently purchased the Bearly Art glue. it seems to be somewhat runny and not as thick as the Art Glitter Glue. I have had to shake the bottle for the Bearly Art glue - not sure if weather is a factor. I know I can't order the Art Glittler Glue in cold months (as already stated) - no one will ship it. Both, they seem comparable, but I guess I prefer the Art Glitter Glue.

Oh! Ok...I thought I had heard Art dries glossy. Cool! thanks

How much does "wiggle time" matter to people?

Art glitter seems to dry faster than Bearly and does not give you time.

Bearly does not give you wiggle time? Oh, that sucks. I am sad about that. I need the wiggle time. I really wanted to try Bearly.
I know this is probably the worst reason to buy a glue. I love the little bear container. Isn't that a sad reason? I do really love the container. I am a sucker for those things. If it is a good product my frugal self will splurge on it.
Why does Art Glitter Glue freeze in the Winter?

After reading this thread I ordered the Bearly precision glue. I ordered the smaller tube from Simon Says Stamps and it was a kit that had several tips, the pin and a special twist on
little cap to keep the glue good when you aren’t using it.
I finally screwed up the courage to use it today with the precision tip to glue down an intricate floral die. Wowzer!!!!!!! The tiniest dots of glue imaginable, easy to apply and it didn’t goosh out extra glue when i laid it down to put the diecut in place.
I did remove and clean the precision tip after using it (because of 100% failure rate on précis tips in the past). I put the small green twist on top to keep the glue in pristine condition.

My question for those of you who have used the Bearly glue, is it ok to just leave the precision tip in place with the pin in it? Will the pin rust? Will it keep the glue fresh?

On the Bearly Art site it says you have 5 seconds to wiggle. I haven't tried the AG glue - I bought the mini starter set from BA and I'm just about ready to get a refill. I promptly lost the pin. Ha!

I understand that you do have a little wiggle time with Bearly. Bearly seems to be thinner in nature-some might not like that.

Dina you cant stick another hat pin in there?

The thinner quilt pins will fit in there - just have to make sure they are stainless steel.

I love the Art one, bought the tiny tip $3.50, lost it the next day, but it is easy to control very small amount coming out. I still prefer 6000E but the last batch I had to chuck because of the intense mold smell. Glue gets moldy? Yep!

It's the most watery glue I have ever used. Maybe that's why it freezes in the winter?

I recently tried Art to adhere printed paper to the lower half of a card front. I was surprised to find the paper still damp and a little warped later. It must be due to the high water content. So it's just back to affixing small things here. It really is a good glue for glitter accents.

I am also testing out both glues and like them equally. A tiny dot is amazing and all you need. I wanted a cap for the Bearly Art and made my own with a mechanical pencil eraser that I just pushed on until a hole was created. It's working great. I really didn't want to mess around with a pin.

I've found both glues to be basically the same. SO....comes down to the applicator and bottle for me. Bearly Art WINS hands down! The applicator has never clogged in the year I've had mine (keeping pin in...and no, it never rusts) and the ease of producing tiny drops of glue on a die cut is amazing and effortless! Yes there is a little wiggle room...just not a lot. With Art Glitter, I used the metal applicator, BUT at some point it became clogged and had to dig out the glue..annoying. Just doesn't produce the tiny drops of glue consistently...sometimes blobs.
Gosh, it's nice to FINALLY have a great glue, applicator AND bottle that's incredibly easy to use! I feel I've tried them all, Tombo, Ranger, Connect, etc. No comparison PLUS Bearly Art is much cheaper.

Brilliant idea! Trotting off to do this before I forget!
Thanks for the idea.

The pin does not rust and it keeps the glue fresh. I have both glues and they both have wiggle room. I do prefer Bearly's precision tip.

I was interested to read about the expiry date on AGG. When I first started out cardmaking (over 10 years ago) someone told me I had to have Art Glitter Glue, so I bought a bottle. In my naivety I thought it was just for glitter (!!!) so I didn't really use it. Lately I have picked it up again, and love it. It didn't dry up in the bottle, or clog, even after all that time. It works exactly as you would expect, and I haven't had any issues with it being watery. I hope they haven't changed the formula, as I would hate to buy a replacement bottle when this one finally runs out to find that it is different!

Default Bearly Art glue and the other one

I like fast drying and very tacky glue. Used Aleene and Beacon 3-n-1 Advanced glue. I don't like spending huge amount of money on glue but is Bearly Art Glue fast drying and tacky?

Art Glitter Glue was a HUGE item back in the 90's when I was working for a high end stamp store in Madison, WI. We did lots of classes applying it to the backside of an image stamped on acetate. They when dry, mounting those on cards. It even dried reasonably fast when applied in a heavier coat onto the acetate. It was used for all sorts of glittering techniques. The pin used MUST be stainless steel! We had customers come in complaining about rust... they had always used regular sewing pins or corsage pins!

I find the NUVO glue to be very similar and the plastic tip on the bottle is very fine. It does occasionally clog but I keep a corsage pin handy and one stroke of that does the trick of opening up the nozzle. I love this glue!

I use Art Glitter Glue. It dries fast for me. Mine is not watery at all. It's a great consistency. I love the tip. Makes it so easy to apply. I also use Fabri-Tac for ribbon, lace and fabric. I find AGG doesn't hold some of my lace and ribbons as well as Fabri-Tac. I was not aware that AGG has an expiration date. I've had mine for a little over a year and it still is fine.
As for the CA cancer warning. That's on everything. I don't pay attention to any warnings from CA.

Oops! I forgot to add that we then applied glitter to the glue, covering one area [or color] at a time, then allowed it to dry. Projects could always be taken home by the end of class.

I use the AGG for most tiny projects. I find it has ample wiggle time and dries clear and matte and not tacky. Those are the pluses. I also use 1 2 3 Stitch for adhering lace and ribbon, but the opening is too large for small spaces and I end up using a tooth pick. I'm excited to try the Bearly glue with it's touted tiny opening. Thanks for the tip. No pun intended) By the way, do local craft stores sell it, or must it be purchased on line?

Sorry for the delay. I guess you have ask your LSS if they have it.

Online you can get both at Amazon or Walmart.com or a variety of places.

Art glitter has it's own site which talks about limited winter shipping-they have several kinds (under adhesives)-we are talking about the designer dries clear one. And they come in big sizes too. One of them (cosmetic) is for skin for people in costume I guess.

Bearly also has it's own site

There was a time that I saw a video by a rep from AGG in which she recommended touching the top opening of the metal or plastic tip to the surface before gently squeezing the bottle, then keeping the bottle in the almost vertical position while applying dots of glue to the surface where you want the glue to be. A series of dots is sufficient to adhere the items together. Because this was a new method of gluing to me, I had to practice a couple of times before I understood the position of the bottle needed to have dots of glue instead of little globs and to find the speed at which to move the bottle along the surface. The method works very well.

Any glue with a tip, such as Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue, can be applied in the same manner. The bottle of glue will last a lot longer using this method.

On Amazon, today, 2 oz of AGG costs $12.44 including the metal tip. Bearly Art Precision Glue with metal tip is listed at $14.99.

Most liquid glues contain water. Water rusts metal. Therefore the pin used to close the AGG metal tip must be stainless steel or the pin will rust and discolor the glue. (Probably this is true of Bearly glue, also.) The stainless steel pin must be of the correct size to actually close the opening of the tip so air does not enter. Dini is right that a quilt pin will fit the AGG tip. To keep the tip open, I usually loosen the whole cap and blow into the metal tip, then insert the pin. So far, no clogging. I think you could tap the bottle on a hard surface to clear the tip.

I've been using Bearly Art glue for about 2 weeks and I LOVE it.

I've always avoided liquid glues because I'm such a messy crafter and the tips always clog up and frustrate the heck outta me! Well, not Bearly Art. It's not messy, flows well, and so far hasn't clogged other than a small glue booger that was easy to push out with the pin.

I've left the pin in it over night a few times and no problem. If I know I won't be using it the next day, however, I try to put an actual cap back on the bottle.

I haven't tried AGG yet, but may get some just to see how it compares. Pretty sure I'll be tossing all my other bottles of glue.

I'm a big fan of Bearly Art...probably have used almost a year now....I ALWAYS leave the pin in 24/7...never a problem! Bought a pin cushion which reminds me where to put the pin....and not on my table to get lost!
