Video: Liquid Adhesive Solutions Update + GIVEAWAY

Hello. Today’s video is an update for fine-tip, no-clog, adhesive solutions.

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. Affiliate links used. To watch the video in HD on YouTube, click HERE.]

My two favorite adhesives are Ranger’s Glossy Accents and Multi Medium Matte. Glossy Accents is a clear, strong adhesive that I like to put on top of embellishments for some shine. Multi Medium Matte is a very strong adhesive that dries matte. However, I find that changing out the tips of these bottles gives a better application and prevents them from clogging. I had done a video on this awhile back but wanted to update it as I get a lot of emails asking if these solutions still work.

For small bottles (such as the Mini Glossy Accents and Multi Medium Matte), I like to take the nozzle off with pliers and replace it with the Quilled Creations fine-tip nozzle. When placing the cap back on, press lightly. Pushing too hard may result in getting it stuck or damaging the needle. Also, I’ve found that the connector piece can come off, which I don’t mind at all, but it’s a personal preference.

For large bottles (such as the large Glossy Accents), I remove the nozzle with pliers and replace it with the Scraperfect No-Clog Writing Cap. I suggest wiping the tip off of glossy accents before placing the cap back on. I really like that the needle in the cap prevents clogging.

Another solution that is cost effective is placing a plastic hang tie (off of clothing) inside the applicator. No need for the cap and it prevents clogging as well.

There are many options out there (trust me – I think I tried them all!), but these have worked the best for me. Hopefully, one of these will work for you too!

  1. air like both of the ones you mentioned but I also use Scotch Tacky Glue a lot because it dries sooooo quickly – it really makes it easier to put boxes and things together. I was sad though when I bought a new bottle and it didn’t have the precision tip that my first bottle did – it comes both ways.

  2. I think Multi Medium Matte would be my favorite, if I tried it. I loved Zip Dry, but have run out and keep forgetting to replace it. I don’t like Tombo mono, it gets on my fingers and is there! LOL I do use Glossy Accents, but of course it’s glossy and not ideal for those times you don’t want it ozzing out. Thanks for sharing what you have discovered. I always enjoy your assessments. And appreciate you vidoes and time.

  3. Thanks to you I discovered both of the Ranger adhesives and fell in love with them 🙂 thanks Jennifer 🙂

  4. Ranger is my favorite. The new tip would make it super easy to use. Thanks for a chance to win.

  5. I use Zig and modge podge, but I just ordered some ranger multi medium matte and glossy accents to try! Thanks for the great info!!

  6. I have been using Tomboy adhesives forever. I have a few of the liquid ones at hand now. I have never tried Rangers multi medium but really want to now. It’s very difficult to get a tiny amount or fine line from Tombows liquid. Can’t wait to try Rangers. The glossy accents I have a small bottle but don’t use it much as it’s also difficult to apply a tiny amt. from the bottle. You’ve given us a lot of tips that has changed the way I look at crafting now. :))

  7. I haven’t used any liquid adhesive but these look awesome! And I love you tip about the clothing tag “stopper”.

  8. My favorite types of adhesive are tacky glue, glue dots and contact cement. I have never heard of this adhesive before but I would love to try it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. My favorite has always been glossy accents, but since I found your blog, I’m also becoming a fan of matte medium.

  10. Glossy accents is my go-to liquid glue and I also like the white Tombow multi liner as a back-up. Love your blog and all the fabulous inspiration I find on it!

  11. Glossy accents is my favorite. I have the large bottle, but always clogs, even when I squeeze the air out!
    Hugs and Happiness,
    Briana C.

  12. I haven’t tried the Multi-media Matte as of yet, but I will. I love Glossy Accents and find that CTMH Liquid Glass works just as well!

    Love the sound of your voice. Thanks, Jennifer!

  13. I love glossy accents and 3 in 1 Beacon glue as my go to glues. Thanks for the chance to win.

  14. I like using Glossy Accents, but I do find the amount that comes out of the bottle to be a little too much sometimes. I think the Scraperfect would be great to try.

  15. I love glossy accents and have used it for ages. The tips will make it easier to manage those tiny little dots of adhesive we sometimes prefer. Thanks.

  16. I use either Glossy Accents or a Jig 2-way Glue Pen.

    Do you think these tips would work with Stickles as well or would the glitter clog the tip? Thanks!

  17. How do you prevent the glossy accents from leaking out of the top of the scaperfect top? I love the fine tip but end up with glossy accents coming out of the top of the blue portion of the lid and the nozzle top.

  18. I have never used the Medium mat adhesive. After seeing your video, I think I will have to try it! I would love to win your free gift! Thank you for all the videos where you show how to use different tools and how to make your cards.

    1. Something went wrong when I went to put my name in. It didn’t come out right.

  19. My favorite liquid glue is the Tacky Glue and the Tombow liquid glue in the blue bottle. I will try the Glossy Accents again since I ordered the Glue tips you recommend.

  20. I just watched your video and decided to get some of these tips. When I clicked on the product photo, I got this error message:
