Product Review...UHU liquid glue

So I got some samples of UHU All purpose, Liquid glue and would love to share my thoughts on this product.

First, the price point of this product is $3.25 I believe. (Looking on
The bottle is 3.2 ounces, and the design fits nicely into my hand. You can use the glue three ways: as a small pointed tip, narrow glue strip, or wide glue strip.

I took this glue with me to the Ali Edwards Discover Home class last Friday, and I must be honest, I was a bit unimpressed with it at first. The main reason is that it is very runny and so it is easy to use too much. Which is what I did, all over the cover of my Junkitz metal album. A little saddening, but ah well.

As the class went on, I got better at going lightly with it, but it really wasn't until today that I feel like I was using just the right amount. This is all with the small pointed tip, by the way.

Today I also tested the narrow and wide glue strip capability of this product...I was less impressed with that - again easy to overdo... The way you get the flat gluing surface is by twisting the top of the bottle around, which is a REALLY cool idea, but somehow the narrow tip part still sticks out a little bit and so really you end up with a line of glue that you have to work to smear around, which gets glue all over the sides of the bottle and then have to wipe off, else you'll glue the cap to the bottle.

So all in all, I will not be carrying this product in the store, and my favorite liquid glue, Aleene's tacky glue, is still the 'reigning champ' in my book.

Here's a link to Maria Filosa's blog if you'd like to try some UHU samples for yourself:

March kits will be shipping soon!

I am really excited about this kit - almost b/c I think you need to see the papers in person to understand how cool they are. Lana did a great job with kit pics this time, but the distressed nature of these papers just doesn't seem to come through...

In other news, we have so many CHA goods in the store right now - it's awesome. I just love going into the warehouse to gawk at the many fun things available.
