X-Press It Clear Gel Glue--Ways to Use It

X-Press It Clear Gel Glue--Professional Quality Adhesive:

  • Water-based thick gel glue
  • Acid free & non-toxic
  • Dries clear & glossy
  • Fast drying
  • Not stringy - no mess
  • Extra fine applicator
  • Strong grip

Use on paper, cardboard, textiles, wood, metal, leather, foam, polystyrene and some plastics.

 Application 1
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue can also be brushed on to create a glossy finish. You can do this over the top of coloured chipboard, or like I have done here over the top of a stamped and coloured butterfly.  X-Press It Clear Gel Glue self-settles, so this means you can brush on and walk away and when you come back the surface will be smooth and void of brush strokes.  Simply wash brushes with water immediately after use.

Application 2
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue can be used to adhere small elements such as sequins and beads, or like I have done here to pile micro beads together to form 3D centres for flowers.  Simply squeeze a small pile of Clear Gel Glue and roll your beads into the glue before transferring to your project.

Application 3
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue is the perfect adhesive for small jobs too, the fine nozzle allows for pointed application like adhering multiple layers of a die cut word, which gives the effect of die cut chipboard and adds extra texture to your work.

Application 4
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue is fantastic with ribbon, yarn and twines of all varieties, apply strategically to hold in place, or cover your twine for an all over gloss effect.  Use Clear Gel Glue to items such as buttons and metal embellishments too.

Application 5
Importantly X-Press It Clear Gel Glue dries quickly.  Once I had built my elements and given the gloss a few minutes to dry, each element was secured to the card front with the same adhesive.  You only need to apply a small amount of X-Press It Clear Gel Glue to each element and position straight away.  For larger elements ensure air bubbles are removed by applying firm, even pressure, in moments your elements will be adhered!
