    Had a heck of a time finding these. Not even Joann's had them.
    Wanted them for my Elmer's glue and such. If anyone else is looking, here is the link:

    Metal glue bottle tips are hard to find if you do not quite creative.

    I have found them at Michaels in the stained glass/glass painting section.

    Plan B is the make-it-yourself plan. The plastic screw-on applicator part for the glue bottle is easy to find at Michaels/JoAnns/etc. and the metal tip is nothing more than the metal tip of a mechanical pencil. The metal mechanical pencil tip will screw right on to the plastic applicator. Viola - a fine tip for a bottle of glue.

    Great idea! The ones I got are different from the Clotilde ones and a lot cheaper. Haven't checked Michael's yet.

    You're right Kitsie! Clotilde's bottles are more expensive but like you, at the time I couldn't find any and I was desperate and glad to see them.

    Also, don't be fooled into purchasing the Glue Baste It glue.
    Great tip on the glue bottle.....you pay dearly for the glue and glue refil. It is water based Elmer's glue. Just keep filling that bottle with the Elmer's.

    I saved the printer ink refill squeeze bottles with the pinpoint long tip. Works great!

    I use Aleene's but should change over to and Elmer's type as it washes out. And thanks for the tip on the pencil end! 'Course yesterday I glued/basted a whole super-queen binding on! I have a 5 pack that I never use!

    The Joann's near me couldn't find them anywhere, so of course I've ordered some, then I read this!

    Anyone want to buy new metal tips, still in the package?
    Enjoy the day!

    in Joanns, those tips are over by where the acrylic and patio paint bottles are..the tips are hanging up. the brushes are there too.. i found them by accident one day, and bought them..

    i also learned the sharon way..it is not for everyone..it is an extra step..

    what words did you use in their search box. I could not find them.
    My JoAnn's and Michales did not have the tips in any department. Each store will carry different items.

    Thank you for posting this. I've looked and looked for them!!! I wanted to try a finer tip for Sharon Schamber's glue basting ideas. Glad you posted it!

    i went to joanns site, and they no longer carry it on line.but they did show a picture of it..

    $3.99 in the store. 3 metal tips,fine,super fine,extra fine. and 2 -2ounce bottle caps.

    they are really fine tipped, you need to water down the glue a bit

    thank you - found the item and ordered them.
    Accidently checked the wrong shipping instructions, so I called and they changed it over the phone. Very helpful owner.

    I used mine straight from the bottle. It made really small dots and my placemats turned out great.
