    I would like to know what glue you use. I take lots of little pieces of paper and glue them together to make one piece of paper some people call it collage some people call it crazy.

    I am having trouble finding a good glue, that sticks but does not wet the paper and buckle it like PVA or craft glue. I have tried the 3D dimensional stuff which sticks well but leaves a mark when it escapes from under the paper.

    Double sided tape works but is really fiddly for small bits.

    How about a glue pen? I use the sakura quickie one, it is like a gel pen but glue, it is really good, it is one of the most useful things in my craft stuff!

    Hi it sounds fascinating what you do...would love to see some of your work

    I too use Sakura quickie glue pens, ideal for small bits and pieces and dries clear.

    Good luck

    I love using Photo glue, when it goes where it shouldn't you simply rub it off and it disappears. Although it is a wet glue you only need a small amount and it is suitable for paper,card and vellum.

    How about a tape runner, like ds tape but much quicker and less fiddly.

    I too use a glue pen (ZiG) when I make my paper flowers as it dries clear and doesn't mark the paper. And if you let it go clear before sticking you can reposition your bits and pieces for quite a while. Once you leave it it sets fast. Great pen for fiddly bits

    Depends on what I'm sticking. Large projects I use spray mount and a brayer to smooth out, medium or paper on paper layers either a tombow tape rubber or zig 2 way glue (they do various size nibs and for small or fiddly I use the sakura glue pens. I mostly do papercrafts and my favorite overall adhesive method is pritstik. Easy, clean and doesn't soak paper. Xx
