    I've seen the use of Elmer's washable school glue used in a variety of ways. Every time, the Youtube demonstrators had a bottle with a metal tip. Are these bottles bought or made? If made, how is it done?
    Thank you.

    I think Michael's carries them if I remember correctly from previous posts. Try the search feature and see if you can find the posts already made on this topic. :-D

    Any place that sells hunting/archery equipment or a hobby shop that has stuff to make the little model trains or doll houses should have the tips. You can also get them from Sharon Schambers website as a PP said however I have NEVER seen them in stock there!

    There are two pieces a plastic piece that gets screwed onto the bottle itself and then the metal tip that goes over that.

    I just don't open the orange screw cap up all the way! lol

    I use mine with just the tip on the bottle as you only use dots of glue. I love to do my binding with glue because when you sew the final seam no pins or corners to struggle with. And for what it's worth, I do have the metal tip from when I was doing decorative painting, but prefer the other way best.
