    Question Elmer's "fine tip"

    I am wondering what the "fine tip" that I see used sometimes on Elmer's glue, used for basting or other quilting uses?
    I went to Michael's today and they had no idea what I was looking for (guess I didn't either).

    What is it and where do I find it as I would love to try this "glue" method for binding and it looks like it would put a fine line down..

    Thanks!

    I saw them at Michael about 3 weeks ago. They were not near the glue but were near the paints.

    I go mine at Michael's also. In the acrylic paint aisle, hanging on the peg board. They came in a package of 2 metal tips and 2 small clear bottles. I have also seen them at Joann's, but were near the x-acto knives.

    I watched a clip of Sharon Scramber using the fine tip to put on binding on a free video on the thequiltshow yesterday? You might want to check it out so you know what you are looking for.

    I looked and looked at Michael's a couple of years ago, couldn't find it, clerk couldn't find it, gave up. Someone on this wonderful quilting board said to use the tip end of a mechanical pencil. Happened to have a nice cheap plastic one, took it apart, took apart the glue bottle tip, inserted the pencil tip and Viola! A nice thin line applicator tip. I do notice that I have to rinse it out after using, but I bet you'd have to do that with a metal tip, too. By the way, to close it I use a straight pin. DON'T use a regular straight pin. They rust. Use a brass one and just stick it in the tip of the tip. When I empty a glue bottle next, I'll just save the original top and switch out the tops, washing out the one with the pencil tip.

    Soon after I posted it, they were sold out so don't know what status is now. Good luck!

    I bought this same package of bottles and tips, but don't know how to use the tips, no directions. Do you put them inside the tip of the glue bottle. Would love some help, thank you.
