I picked up this glue pen by accident at the local craft store. But honeslty, it was the BEST un-intended purchase ever. I did a fine detail project using very very detailed, multi-layer die cuts and I used this pen to put everything together. The ball point alowed for greater control, and since the glue rolled on blue, I was able to see exactly where the glue was. Don't worry, it dried quick and clear! Anyway, I was afraid I would run out of glue so I had buy two more pens for upcoming projects. I did a price comparasion across multiple websites and in-store locations, and Scrapbook.com had the best deal. not to mention I was able to get a bunch of other cool craft items I had been looking for too! :)
I don't know how this stacks up against other glue pens, and if it keeps working as well as it's been, I guess I won't find out. This pen applies easily, and even after multiple uses, I have had zero clogging issues. It's a ballpoint tip, and although the application isn't always as even as I'd like (sometimes you've got to give a little squeeze to get the glue flowing, and that can leas to excess), the adhesive has proven strong enough for my scrapbooking projects. No more glue sticks for me!
I bought this Martha Stewart glue pen to use on a Disney castle that you have to put together and it has really thin lines, this is pressure activated and so the amount of pressure you use is how much will come out. This literally made my project a lot easier than it would have been. I love how it is blue and you know when it's starting to dry because it turns clear so you do have to work fast but it really is good.
I have used these for years now and they are terrific. You can get a very minute dot of glue for the finest of cutouts or get a nice swirly line if you need that. Each one lasts a long time. If the tip gets gummy because you leave the cap off for too long just remove the residue with your fingers and start again.
I truly love these!
Martha Stewart makes the best tools.
