Zip Dry Glue Review.

REVIEW by Krital of Digi Kitty:

I am an avid paper piecer--which means I'm a glue connesieur. I am always trying new glues to find the perfect one. I have finally found my match! Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon is an amazing product.

The first quality I noticed was the ease of use. It gives you about a minute to move your pieces around till you are satisfied your piece is in the right location. That is about all the time you have--it's a very quick drying glue.Which is fantastic if you are a paper crafter and do not want to wait for glue to dry after every single piece, or step.  It is a paper piecer's dream! Every piece stays put and locked down perfectly.

It goes on smooth like any normal clear glue, dries quickly, and remains adhered. The nozzle does not clog. However there is a trick. As soon as you are finished using Zip Dry, you must remove the nozzle and run it under hot water, to losen any remaining glue. This gives you the perfect applicator each time, and is well worth the few seconds to clean.

I have been using Zip Dry for the past 2 weeks, and am addicted! It makes my piecings neat, fast, and beautiful.

For ease of use, I give it a 9 out of 10. Permanancy is a 10 of 10. Clean up a 8 of 10.

The only con is the 40 second clean up, which is minimal and well worth the few seconds.

If you are looking for a clear quick drying permanent glue, Zip Dry is the glue for you.

Beloved Keepsakes
- - Wooohoo summer is here! How do you plan to spend your summer this year? Maybe a trip to the “Magical Place” we all love? A visit to the Islands? A nature walk? A trip to the country? A visit to grandmas? Or maybe you plan to take a cruise or head on over for a family reunion, we guarantee we have a design to complement any of your summer time layouts!

Chris Durnan... It's the month of June. My focus in the month of June is summer with the kiddo, Father's Day with my hubby, bbqing with friends and working on the QMC files. And just having fun and Enjoying life!! I hope you have a wonderful summer! Don't forget to keep those moments journaled so you can put them into our albums at the end of summer. Looking back on your notes will bring a great smile to your face when school starts again and the kiddo's are back with the teachers. I have lots of cuts to put in a frame for Dad's in the store for an easy gift for Grandpa or Dad.
