Those actually look perfect. That number 0 assorted set looks good for about $20.00. I'm going to check at the THREE crafts stores here and see if they are in the polymer section before I order.

Thanks!

Free hand rainbow star bursts - Page 2 Empty Rubber brushes for free hand glitter

Post by Denise Cold on Tue Jun 28, 2011 8:01 pm

I bought the rubber clay tool. It was one of the bulky ones but the lines were FABULOUS! I was really impressed because the "cone" seemed to hold the glue and feed the tip. I hardly had to go over the lines at all like I do with a brush. Brushes get that drag-through line in the middle. If your glue was thick it wouldn't work as well but with my glue it was great. I could go a couple of strokes before re-dipping.

I only put a little alcohol in the middle well of my brush cleaner lid and used cotton circles to clean it and it was all clean. You could see there was very little residue compared to a brush.

I haven't really used the other chisel end but it has a nice fine point. I tried to make flower petals with it but I put the glue on too thick so it smooshed when I pressed down the glitter, you'd have to let it dry some.

Well, turned out much better than I thought and much quicker for fine line work than a brush.

Sorry to dig up a two month old thread, but as I was reading about all the brushes I wondered... could you put the glue into one of those fine tip henna bottles or henna cones?

I tried that and the glue was thin enough that it just ran out of the tip. I had visions of cool henna-like free hand. I was wondering about trying white elmer's type glue for fun, it would have to be pretty thick.

I use mine out of a jaquard bottle but I have a micro point plastic tip (where it's the width of a really thin needle). I honestly have no clue where I picked it up but it works. The only issue I've run into is that the glue dries and clogs so I have to store the bottle with a needle in it.

Yep thats prob the kind of bottles I use - I had to bulk buy to get them though!
Mine i prefer to the push-in lids with the metal push on cone tips as the applicator tips I now have screw on so won't pop off.
Plus I get many sizes of tip so you can get EXTREMELY fine.

I love it as your glue 'keeps' in the bottles when you take off the applicator tip and put the cap back on - so no possibility of spillage or it drying out.

I try not to use brushes unless for big areas as none of the removers restore brushes perfectly and they get ruined.

Here is a video of me using my bottles:

its more to show the glue application process than the glitters!

Ah but you can charge more per tatt than faces, as it lasts longer and has that 'wow' effect. Plus I mainly only do this at adults events (balls etc) so can charge a bit higher again!

I got a bottle set from Hobby Lobby and the tips were too fine for my homemade liquid bling (kept popping the top like Cat mentioned) but they might work for glue. I'll have to test them.

Cat, it looks like you use the type of glue that Amerikan Body Art sells that I have. Is there a name for it?

Cat, where did you bulk buy these from? If I googled it, what would it be called? Those are awesome Very Happy

I've been using a glass bottle with a brush on the lid (like for nail polish), but the brush is too thick.

I did a deal with a guy who buys other stuff from the company for his industrial site;)

I don't know re Amerikan Body Art, the guys I get my glue from make it in the UK & as said like most glues it doesn't travel well, they charge a LOT to ship it. As said most of the glues are pretty similar and Graftobian etc is what I used to get before this - that still worked out chepaer than Ybody pink glue...

Yep I went right off the liquid bling style bottles thats why I hunted up these!

Yep the tips are the same as i sell but the bottles I sell are oval and easier to handle/ squeeze. And I have tried all the tips - if those are the same size as mine, you don't want to go wider than pink or thinner than orange, it doesn't work with cosmetic glue as its runnier than henna.
