      Well, it's no secret that I love Helmar products (especially the Premium Craft glue for paper and 450 quick dry for everything else). So I am curious, what is your favorite adhesive? Any particular reason you choose that brand?

        I like Glossy Accents. I use it all the time for lots of stuff, not just adhesive. I have no particular reason, it just works!

          Art Glitter (Dries Clear) is my favourite, but I can only get it from a couple of outlets here in the UK.

            WEll as much as i use hot glue…. LOL, cause i am so impatient! I would say my fave adhesive is either Aleene's tacky glue clear, or E6000.

              I use Beacon's 3 in1, E6000, Aleene's Tacky Glue and Glossy Accents, hot glue whatever my hand reaches for first

                Oh good lord. I have as much adhesive as I do pp…LOL…well, not that much, but alot all for different things.

                1. I use the ATG for paper to paper.
                2. Scor-tape for paper to chipboard on the edges.
                3. PPA for paper to chipboard in the center spread out with a brayer.
                4. I either use Glossy Accents, Scotch Quick dry or Multi-medium Matte for alot of my embellishments especially the metal ones.
                5. The hot glue gun if I need something to dry immediately, but really hate the strings so I try to make it work with one of the above.
                6. The Xyron X for ribbon and small letters.

                I've never tried the Helmars 450, but from what I've seen from some of the youtube videos, it looks alot like the Zipdry, which I really don't like. It clogs up all the time and has strings which drive me crazy. It looks like it gets the job done and holds really well, but I just can't stand all the strings.

                      Wow – diverse group on the subject. I like glossy accents but so pricey (ladies seriously try to Helmar 450 instead for the loaded projects with heavy stuff).

                        Maybe Helmar 450 needs to be in a kit. HINT Hint.

                          I like my sookwang double sided tape and Fabri-tac. Glossy accents is great but can be expensive. I'll have to check out some stores for the Helmars, I'm not sure who would carry it up here.

                                Thanks Vicky, I guess I'll have to wait until I go to the mainland & check out the store in Surrey.

                                  StephD I just bought some sookwang tape a couple of weeks ago and I am liking it. Never heard of it until then. I also use FabriTac on paper projects–I've never tried it on fabric though. I like it because it dries fast and holds like crazy! I love gel medium and E6000 for heavy stuff and I use PVA on alot of things too. I currently have Tombow taperunners but I've used many kinds.
