So I bet you are alot like me, when someone would say "hot glue" you pictured a very utilitarian "gun" of sorts that squirts unbelieveably hot, skin blistering and peeling glue...yeah you know you've done it...you can recall that instant pain followed by that unbelievable throb that lasts for DAYYYYYSSSS.... Well I am here to educate you just abit!! Glue guns have come a long way baby!! First off, a few years ago I realized that glue guns come in different temperatures. Yes, they are all "hot" but the low temp versions are FAR SAFER for using on crafts where kids are concerned. Did you see the awesome sail boat Coleton made for the Fairfield Blog using their newest material Oly*fun? Head on over to see his entire process...
Well there is no way I would let him create using a high temp glue... but Ad Tech's Low Temp gun was JUST RIGHT for him! So okay, now we know - there are two temps...well yeah - THERE'S ALOT MORE than that!
I just got the BEST BOX OF GOODIES from AdTech!!! Look at this haul!
Seriously???? I can't get over how generous this company is with me, but secondly, WHO KNEW there was GLITTER HOT GLUE??? Glow in the Dark??? FOAM GLUE???? It's a cool temp glue that doesn't melt foam! I can't wait to try that one out...and ummm can ya dig the KEYUUUUTE guns with the patterns?? I am sooo going to be setting those babies up and TOTALLY using them in my upcoming tutorial posts. I also came to find that AdTech also makes Glue Runners. I had no idea they had such an extensive product line so to me it was not only fun to get a box of product but it was awesome to be able to now play with things I haven't played with before. Stay tuned for all the fun projects I have planned....you know you want to see how I use all these goodies!! ;) PS - Here's a bonus link to my fun and easy Mason Jar Pincushion Project over on the Fairfield World Blog! It too uses hot glue, I am constantly using hot glue so you gotta know I was thrilled to be added as an AdTech Ambassador! :D
