I love Stickles, but have to admit it's only recently that I've started using all the different colors. I'm hooked! I've only had trouble with one of them clogging up, and pryed off the top piece and washed it thoroughly. It worked like charm then.

I was wondering because I just recently purchased several. I find myself using the clear ones so much more than the colors.

I don't have a clear one. I have the lace and diamond and an icicle one along with green, red, two blues and something else, but I don't remember. I use them all. Every last one of 'em. Love 'em. Need more.

I have about 15 colors now... but I have only used about 5 of them so far! I just got them like 2 weeks ago, so it's not like I've had them for months and months and haven't used them... I am looking for ways to use them on each LO, though! They are so pretty, I love all the colors!!

I have them all (including the ICE) and I think there might be two colors I haven't used yet. Maybe three. I've lost track. I know I've tested each color to see how they look.

You know...I originally thought the clear was the most versatile and truly I think it is if you can't afford the others, but WOW...I love the look of the colors. I have accumulated a few and would love to have ALL of them.

I use an off brand's Opal color which looks great over pp without changing the underlying colors. Prefer Stickles but since I still have alot of this glitter glue, I'm still using it for big areas. Stickles is better for detail type of work (thin lines).

I'm going to have to buy the orange, it really is a fav color of mine!!!
...and I think I have the papers you're talking about.
I have about 8 colors and waiting for 3 more to arrive. I've used the Xmas red and the ice.
I'm surprised at how much I love them!!!!

You're missing some. There are 35 regular colors and 12 Ice with 18 more coming after CHA.

But you're right, we need a support group.

I tried my Stickles for the first time yesterday and have to say, not impressed. What am I doing wrong? I could barely get the stuff to come out of the bottle, and was squeezing the bottle so hard I was afraid it was going to pop and I would be covered in Waterfall stickles. (and if you read my rub-on post... it could happen...)

I am SURE it is user error and I just need a Stickles tutorial.

There seems to be a batch of Stickles that are doing this stuck thing. I find what works for me is to hold it upright and squeeze and release several times until this action breaks up the clumped glitter pieces. Also I'll squeeze it where it's clogged/not coming out, take a thin needle and poke the clump. Then is should work fine.

Aggravating. Hope they don't make this mistake again. The first bottle of Stickles I used flowed so well, it was incredible. Then I got one of these bottles. Don't know what they changed. It was the same color but maybe different batch, exposed to heat or cold or something that make these clumps.

I poked it with a paperclip, too. Maybe I need a longer paperclip to stir it up. Thanks for letting me know I'm not crazy. Sure would like to get a "good flowing" bottle, because I think they look like fun!

I think you may get better results with a thinner needle. Otherwise you're just pushing the clump around, not breaking it up. The clump isn't big, just big enough to be aggravating!

Oh ********, off to check out what I am missing or thinking maybe I miscounted...

I will say I don't like those icicles. I like the regular one. Tried the icicles once and just was not sold.

18 more colors, That means another shopping trip. Darnnit. NOT

The Ice ones seem more like the other glitter glues I can find all too easily and for much cheaper locally. But you can't beat regular Stickles for fine lines and great colors.

I really love Joann's Craft Essential glitter glues for covering large areas. Just make user you don't pick up the other brand they carry. The bottles are the same but the other brand they carry is nowhere near as good as the Craft Essential ones.

Tara, my bottle of waterfall did the same thing... I used my paper piercer and stuck it down the tube, swirled it around a bit, and didn't have a problem after that!

Be careful inserting larger than the nozzle hole stuff. I've accidentally enlarged the hole of one of my bottles and now it can't make as fine a line as before.

Ditto. I've had to change out the tips from empty bottles because of this.

Yayyy! 6 "new" colors from Suze (they actually existed before but weren't NAMED Stickles - super blingy) and 12 "distress" from Tim! These look like the glass glitter because of the different sizes of glitter particles - very nifty!

The best glitter glue on the market. Makes the fines lines and is great for detailed designs.

Below are the ones that sb.c carries. There's 35 regular colors and 12 Ice ones. I'm not impressed with the ice, they're like other glitter glues on the market.

Ok..I bought a bottle of stickles and I thought it would be raised when dry. It wasn't. It dried flat. Am I doing something wrong? I did shake the bottle before using. I got a bottle of Liquid Pearl and that dried great, didn't flatten at all.

You need to apply it "tall", kinda like you're filling in a gap between the tip and the paper rather than just drawing a line.

It all depends on what look I'm going for. The first time I used stickles I used red on white and the contrast looked great! Other times I've used the clear ones for a more subtle look. I love both kinds.

All in how you place it. If I place the nozzle directly onto the paper and hole the bottle more vertically, I'll get a flatter effect. Holding the bottle above the surface of the paper and more at an angle, I'll get a taller effect.

hi, just read everyons comment's about stickles . sticking, well here is what i do is use a long paper clip and just push it in the top of the bottle, . it works for me, also when you get down and nothing want's to come out, take a puh pin, and get it down, in the lid, ,it will pop the lid off and ,just take a q,tip or whater,make up stick,and use the rest of the bottle up, it works laddies, and more money for other thing;s. hope this help's.

I just bought 2 bottles of stickles and haven't used them yet, but can't wait! My question is how different is it from fabric glitter glue? I have used it on my LO's before and found that it works great, but just wasn't sure if the stickles were similar...

Use it just like fabric glue. I was told that that was how Stickles start out as, use for fabric. Don't know if that's true or not. It works like it. Doesn't spread out like regular glitter glues do. Keeps its shape like dimensional fabric paints do.

Thanks for letting me know to use it just like fabric glue...I have used the fabric glue several times on LO's like I said before. I can't wait to use mine to see if I like it better than the fabric glue, the stickles do cost quite a bit more.

I use a sewing needle and that seem to get things flowing again.

I LOVE my stickles! I got several new ones today. I do tend use the clearer ones the most, but I am using the colored ones too. I have one of the ice stickles and I like it. I just started getting into the liquid pearls and I love those too!

Vivian gave me the idea to make a list of all the stickles, ice stickles and liquid pearls aith a sample of each. I did that and I find that very helpful in seeing what they look like as well as helping me keep track of what I have. Thanks Vivian!

Anything to further the cause of bling! Glad to help. Now that you mention it, I should do this with my dimensional fabric paints. But most aren't even labeled. Need to just use them up so I won't have to catalog them.
