This clear-dry liquid glue comes in one ounce or four ounce bottles. It is also available in a matte or glossy finish.
In addition to performing its job as a liquid adhesive, it also makes a great collage medium and finisher/sealer. It can be easily applied with your finger or a brush. I've used it as both the collage medium and sealer on this canvas.
Here, I've used it as an adhesive to connect the rings on the DIY Ornaments that I assemble so frequently.
If it is added in a thick coat straight from the bottle, it adds a nice bit of dimension and protection to your article like this little pumpkin.
Remember when using liquid adhesive - a little goes a long way. Too much glue and it doesn't have a chance to set up and connect. Less is more. I like to squeeze out a thin line of glue and pinch my pieces together for a few seconds to ensure good contact between the pieces. For larger objects, like the DIY Ornaments, I recommend using clip clothespins or binder clips to hold tight while the glue is setting.
I really appreciate that I can get so many uses from one product. And, it cleans up easily and quickly with water. No special cleaner required.
Glastique retains some elasticity when it is dry, allowing objects to bend a bit without cracking. It's useful on things like flower petals and leaves.
