For years I have used Amerikan glitter gel. The last three times I ordered it.....they stop working, I have tried poking a needle thru...I don't like to cut down the nose of the bottle, cuz I like thin lines. They used to hold metal tips......now they don't. Is there a different brand that doesn't do this?
I keep just throwing them away..I have even had men come over with their brut strength to squeeze out ton....it just doesn't work.
This was a tip from Denise Cold while at FABAIC 2014: Use a small water tight container. Denise used empty 35mm film containers, no longer available. I use the smallest Rubbermaid container. Fill part way w/water. Hot works best, but I do this on the job from my clean water jug. Remove plastic tip, immerse in water, cover tightly & shake hard. If you can, running under a water faucet helps at this point. This removes the clog. I forgot my empty "shaker" once & had to stop using my gold glitter gel, which can happen to any brand if not used for some time. Now, I don't leave w/out it!!!
