I have used a hot glue gun on my prima flowers and metal embellishments that require a little more stronger glue. I have heard that beacons 3 in 1 glue works just as good. I have yet to really bu myself with my glue gun but I am thinking of using conventional glue if there is a good stron one you recommend let me know. Hugs TracyOctober 22, 2010 at 3:40 pm #66223
Tracy, I've had good luck with the Tombow metal glue. And Zip Dry is awesome; just make sure you use it in a well ventilated area!!!October 22, 2010 at 3:43 pm #66222
I'll just chime in to say that Zip Dry is awesome. Beacons, in my opinion, is annoying because it stringy.October 22, 2010 at 6:17 pm #66224

but if the stringy stuff doesn't bother , than yes it works too.
Watch out though-If for the first time in 10 years you get you get a manicure for a special occasion and the next you use the beacon's and get some on your newly polished nails. Let's just say-make sure no kids are around….sighOctober 22, 2010 at 6:50 pm #66225
I use pop dots or Glossy Accents or Alene's Tacky Glue. Whatever is within reach.October 22, 2010 at 6:57 pm #66226
I will use my hot glue gun for many things like metal. Never tried Arlenes for metal but I shall. love Arlenes for trim and ribbon though.October 22, 2010 at 8:11 pm #66227
I started out using Beacons and it does work well but is stringy and clogs. You need to keep a pin in it. Then I discovered how fabulous using my glue gun was! Why in Gods name had I not thought of it sooner! It does not clog, It bonds INSTANTLY (and I mean you better like where you just put that sucker down cuz it ain't movin) instantly! And it doesn't run out! One of those sticks lasts forever! So I am a glue gunner and ATC girl now. I will say it is very very bad for manicures and do not test the glue to see if it is hot. IT IS!!!October 23, 2010 at 3:35 pm #66228October 26, 2010 at 12:11 am #66229
I use Aleen's tacky glue or glossy accents. Just recently I stared using my hot glue gun.
I'm trying to buy a ATG gun to replace my stupid vario!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."October 26, 2010 at 10:40 am #66230
Zip dry is wonderful for holding down heavy things!!! I use Aleen's and lots of dots.October 26, 2010 at 1:57 pm #66231
i never even thought about using my hot glue gun. Well i just have to add it to the arsenal.October 26, 2010 at 2:44 pm #66232
I have a glue gun and never could get it right, not quick enough, I guess.October 27, 2010 at 12:14 am #66233October 27, 2010 at 1:58 pm #66234October 27, 2010 at 3:54 pm #66235
