      So this question comes with a little story.

      This weekend, dh was fiddling around with broken dowel for his plants and needed some glue. I told him to go upstairs and look in a drawer for some wood glue. Of course, he sees Fabric-Tac and Zip-Dry, and asks why he can't just use one of these. I told him to just get the wood glue because he's gluing wood, and it will work. He must have asked me five more questions about WHY I have so many different glues. I know I can't be the only one who has multiple adhesives.

      I have FabriTac for embellishments, ZipDry for all paper layers and MDF projects, two sizes of Scor-Tape, foam strips, and glue dots on my desk at any given time.

      So, how many glues do you use? 🙂

          I think fabriTac and Zip Dry are my favs but I have a whole tote full. I never realized how many I had, or I guess I never pondered it until my hubby needed glue for a rocket that the boys broke….He was shocked at how many options I had….lol totally relate Rae!

            Let's face it, we're a sticky bunch. Don't forget the glue stick, red line tape, and the tape runner. I've tried every tape runner ever made and destroyed every one except Glue Glider Pro.

                PVC glue, Aleene's tack it over & over (for unmounted stamps), red line adhesive, scotch double-sided tape, every shape and size of glue dots available, white and black foam squares, Zip Dry, mono adhesive, E6000, Glossy Accents, regular scotch tape, multi-medium (matte & glossy), Art Institute glitter glue, spray can adhesive (brand name escapes me), Crystal Lacquer, elmer's glue, Beacon 520, gem & glass glue, hot glue… .and that's off the top of my head while sneaking online @ work!

                Lucky for me DH is an avid model airplane flyer/builder/repairman, so he can't really complain about all my adhesives lest I point out the toolbox of them he owns!!

                  I think I use the same as everyone else. FabriTac, Zip Dry, Aleene's Tacky Glue, Glossy Accents, Art Glitter Glue, Zig fine tip glue pen, 3L E-Z Runner Permanent tape, Glue Dots, foam tape, and the Scotch pink ATG gun. Whew! That seems like a lot!

                    well I guess I'm a slacker..I have the super duper pink tape runner and hot glue gun..that's it. I dont have the patience for the other glues and that 600 stuff smells to high heavens! The down side is the spiders web of glue strings I have to pick off a project afterwards 🙂

                      Well Tracey, that's how I was too until recently. I ran out of hot glue and was forced to use my fabritac. I love it. I'm also using more foam squares for layering.

                        PVA (aka bookbinding) for just about everything.
                        Pop Dots, Glossy Accents & Gel Med will make appearances sometimes.

                          I have a big tape runner and little tape runners that make dots. I have Aleen's quick dry, glue dots several sizes and pop dots and squares, foam tape, red line adhesive, Zig 2 way glue, Beacon 3 in 1, a xyron little ones and a big one, crystal lacquer, and glitter glue. I have not tried Fabric tac. Is it an aggressive adhesive?

                            I'm glad it's not just me, for the most part.

                            Tracey, you still get the strings with some of the liquid glues, so it isn't just a hot glue problem. I bu myself or ruin something every time I use hot glue!

                            I also have a Quickie pen by Sakura. I love that thing.

                              I forgot, I also have a hot glue gun.

                                I also have the pink ATG. It's not wonderful for me because it doesn't like left-handed people. ;)
