    metal tip for Elmer's School Glue bottle?

    I used Elmer' School Glue on a binding recently but couldn't make a fine enough line with the orange plastic tip that comes on the bottle. Quite a mess. I looked at Sharon Schamberg's video about using it (sorry, probably wrong spelling of her name) and saw that she had a metal tip on her glue bottle, and she mentioned using it, but I can't find this metal tip anywhere. Does anybody know where I can find one? How to order it, etc?

    Thanks!

    She sells them on her web site but found she is always out of stock. I found mine at Joann's in the Paint dept. they were very inexpensive.

    She originally said you could use the tip from a mechanical pencil; just unscrew the tip from the pencil. Currently her dd's website sells a plastic tip for glue bottles. Here is a link:

    I tried that, what a mess! If you can't find the metal tip, look for a bottle with a long narrow tip. It's not quite as fine as the metal, but if you don't squeeze too hard, it works well. I think I got mine in the acrylic paint section of Joann's.

    Just don't open the bottle lid full throddle. Open a tiny bit, dab 'dots' of glue, iron and you're ready to go.

    Go to a store like Michales, JoAnn's or the like and into the art dept. and you will find tips that fit the paint bottles and there are a couple sizes in there that will screw on.

    IMHO, it does not need to be those tiny metal tips. I have posted this before and I have even turned quite a few scrapbookers into believers. Go to a beauty supply store (we have Sally's Beauty Supply here) and pick up an empty applicator bottle. They even have slanted tipped ones! They are less than $2. The cap fits right on the glue bottle. It is a longer tip with a small opening and it is very easy to guide the glue where you want it. Rinse out the cap when finished, don't store the glue tip with a pin inside it until it is washed and dried. Some pins rust and make a mess in the glue. Ask me how I know... If you buy the larger bottles of glue for economy, pour glue right into the applicator bottle.

    I had looked and looked in paint depts. of Michael's, JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. Could not find them for the life of me until someone said they found some that came with small bottles. I started looking for the bottles and Bingo! There they were.
