Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue, 8.45 oz~ This glue sets clear when dry, non=toxic,
flexible bond and will not yellow. It has been specially designed for book binding (PVA quality), mounting photographs,
preserving old or precious books, documents, scrap books, decoupage and most craft projects. It features excellent
adhesion dense papers and has a highly flexible bond. It dries quickly and is non-wrinkling. The non-wrinkling
has to do with the water content in glues- the more water- the more it wrinkles.
drying time is considered fast but that also depends on your climate-humid areas will take a little longer. It has a
neutral ph level. When using glues, always consider the 2 pieces you are trying to adhere and make your choice of glues
on that. This glue is not the type to use if you are gluing metals. Great choice for papers, book binding, etc.
I used the matte medium to adhere this beautiful Graphics 45 paper to this special edition
cigar box. I use a trowel like plastic applicator to spread the medium all the way to the
edges of the paper and it presents with an almost seamless adhesion to the box- a very professional look.

|The Ultimate - Crafter's Pick
Crafter's Pick The Ultimate Glue~ This water based, non-toxic super glue adheres
to metals, plastics, glass, ceramics, vinyls, painted and varnished surfaces, wood, fabrics, leather, paper and more.
It is great for glueing your favorite found objects to your project. It is also useable as a water base contact cement
for non-porous materials by coating both surfaces, allow it to go clear and them immediately press together. Replaces
toxic glues, cements and hot glue. A great universal household glue. Great also for pin backs, jewelry settings
and so on. . I have used it on many of the samples I have prepared with embellishments and they have held
up very well traveling to conventions. 4 ounce size.
Polymer Clay Artists- While attending the CHA, 2005 trade show, I had the opportunity to speak with Maureen
Carlson, a well known polymer clay artist. She uses The Ultimate by Crafters Pick for adhering her polymer clay creations.
I took a class with her and we used it to adhere clay to paper. Worked great.
Crafter's Pick Incredibly Tacky Glue~ It really sticks! An all purpose glue, fast grabbing,
fast drying and flexible. Great for gluing odd shapes, fabric, wood, paper, ceramics, glass, leather, some plastics
and metallic surfaces. Non toxic and water based. Dries clear. I like both the Crafter's Ultimate and Tacky
Glue equally well.

E6000 Craft Adhesive~ This is a well loved glue by crafters and
jewelry makers. Many people who lke to work and make jewelry absolutely love this glue and won't use anything else.
It dries clear and has been specially formulated to meet high performance industrial requirements. It provides excellent
adhesion to wood, metal, glass, fiberfglass, ceramics, leather, rubber, vinyl and many plastics. It is even acide free
once fully cured. Many glues don't actually dry-they cure and this is what provides the good bond. What really
intriqued me about this glue is that it is even washer/dryer safe. Investing in good glues is never a mistake!
It comes packaged in a 2 oz. tube. I checked with the mfg. for freezing- it can be frozen & thawed up to 11 times.
Check below for the smaller 0.18 Fl oz size tube. It also is flexible when dried, paintable, waterproof, non-flammable
& safe for photographs.

E-600 Smaller Size, 0.18 Fl Oz~Same great glue, just smaller size tube. I personally
find this one more appealling. I have resisted using the larger tube, but have gained a whole new appreciation for the
glue in this smaller size. I just find it more manageable, more expensive in this size, but I go in and out of
projects- so may use it alot for a period of time and then not pick it up again for awhile.
UHU Glue Stick~This is the colored stick (purple) which makes it nice because you
can see where you have laid down your glue and it dries clear. I have used this brand for years and has been a favorite
since the beginning of my stamping addiction/collection. This is the larger stick, .74oz and is non-toxic, washable
and acid free. It is also made in Germany- who knew!
Glossy Accents by Ranger~ I am always amazed at the number of products
on the market and how you sometimes pass over them without realizing what a treasure they are. This is one of those
products. It seemed that at CHA 2008, many companies were using this product for their make-it/take-its.
This is a clear dimensional adhesive, You can use this on top of something to add dimension or bring attention to it,
much like Judikins or Aleene's, but I particulary liked it as an adhesive to glue things into the metal pendants, like the
Patera pendants or Amate pendants. I also used it as an adhesive to put embellishments onto a wood mirror and it worked
great, even on a tiny light bulb. It dries to a hard, clear glossy finish and comes with a fine tip for precise application.
Remember, as with most dimensional adhesives- don't shake it! - this creates air bubbles. Comes in a 2 oz. plastic bottle.
The sample shown right is a metal covered disc covered in paper with glossy accents applied over top.
Do you have enough double stick Terrifically Tacky Tape?
Sample of metal disc covered with paper and then crackle applied on top and then the plain
glossy accents over the dried crackle. She has some serious aging going on.
Sample with paper covered domino, crackle applied and after that dried the regular glossy accents
was applied. Sorry this didn't scan better. I have a square bead topped with a Swarovski crystal on the bottom and
the extra height and dimension makes the bottom image blurry.
Ranger Inkessentials Brand Collage Glue Stick~This is acid free, non toxic and dries clear.
It is used to bond paper surfaces. So don't use for metals, glass, etc. I bought this based o the recommendation
of my friend Angela, who owns the Creative Chaos Store in Circleville, Ohio. She lives, breathes eats paper practically
and she could not praise this glue stick enough. That was good enough for me so here it is. Comes in a 1 oz tube.
