I own both this glue pad and the Palette Stamp & Stick Gluepad. They seem to be the same product but really are not.
The Palette Stamp & Stick Gluepad is the choice for flocking. This pad needs to be heat set. Stamp with the glue add the flocking and heat set. Flocking is not bothered by the heat. For Gold leafing Stamp heat set then add leafing.
But to use the glass marbles or glitter This pad is wetter and really hold these items. It also does not need to be heat set which would ruin most glitters.
Both pad work better on coated paper. Another tip is to add black ink to the pad if you want a colored base. When flocking I perfer to have a dark base so if an area is not covered it does not really show.
I bought this because I had a coupon I couldnt let go to waste, and to my surprise it was worth it. I've used it with stamps and flock. The glue comes off the stamps easily and the flock stuck. The glue dries fast too.
