Well the subject of the difference between the two brands of glitter glue was brought up on the M's $1 bin post so I decided to try and do a little compairing of my own.
Here's some photos and I'll finish up with some thoughts of the differences after the photos. lol
This was so fun as I love to play with the glitter glue as i'm still trying to get the hang of them.
The stickles does have a slightly more fine tip but I think with more practice you could get a just as thin line with the studio g glitter glue though too.
The distress stickles has a bigger tip than the regular stickles and more clumpy, less shiny but I think the clumpyness probably depends on the color as I just have the yelow and green and my yellow is more clumpy than the green. The distress has larger glitter than the other two types.
The studio g almost seems to have finer glitter than the stickles. The studio g bottles are deffinately bigger than the stickles bottles. Studio g is more clumpy that stickles but the more you use it the better you can get with it.
I think stickles is probably more shinier than the studio g but they are definately very shiny too and maybe that depends on the color as the studio g green is just as shiny as the stickles but the other colors aren't. It's also kindahard to take pics of the shinyness.
I do like the stickles the best because of the tip and shine but for the price and my budget i'll probably end up with more studio g than the stickles. But also I don't have to many of the colored stickles to compare the two.
I definately don't think studio g is bad at all and with practice can be just as good as the stickles.
What do you guys think?
Feel free to tell me if i'm wrong about anything cause i'm always learning new things!
I had to run intown for some errands and stopped at M's and decided to pick up some in more Studio G glitter glue in the same color of the stickles.
All I could find was silver. So I used some of the studio g silver under the stickles silver and you can see the studio g silver is much lighter.
The middle line was my first try, then the lefts strip was the 2nd try and the right one was my third go around and was able to get a thinner strip in that time.
It's nice and shiny too!
So just practicing will deffinately help. Out of my I think 10 studio g bottles, none of them is runny at all thankfully and hopefully that was a one time problem that someone else had.
As far as drying times I think they are probably about the same.
I haven't checked to see what other colors studio g has but at my M's there's probably at least another 5 that they have that I don't.
So there's deffinately still gonna be a need for certian stickles if studio g doesn't make those colors. I love those white clear stickles.
