Can anyone recommend a liquid glue that doesn't dry sticky?

I have tried the Tombow multi mono and I hate the stickiness if any oozes out. I like the blue Zig pens for paper on paper but sometimes I needs something more heavy duty when glue dots are not practical.

Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. As with most glues, you have to let them dry completely so they can set up and not be sticky and drag all over your paper. I've tried other glues but I always go back to Quick Dry.

scotch Quick Dry is the only liquid glue I like. Small nozzle, and when they say quick dry...they are not kidding

Tried most of the above. For the past five years I have used Art Glitter Glue, dries clear, sticks everything from metal, buttons, fabric to paper, it is the only thing I use these days to stick onto something - use Glossy Accents and for ribbon always pull out my trusty Xyron. Hope that helps:

Zip Dry. Anything that oozes out will roll off with your fingers after it dries.

Let's talk about Beacon's 3 n 1. What is special about it? I'm headed to CKC Kansas City in October, and one of my classes specifically mentions it in the supply list.

I use Claudine Hellmuth Studio multi-medium for so much of my gluing. It comes it a squeeze bottle or a jar (in which case you would need a little brush). I use it to glue on buttons and other heavier embellishments and it's great if a little bit of paper is sticking can get a little on your brush and brush it under the paper and press down. It dries pretty quickly, but also gives you enough wiggle room if you have to adjust that button.

I like glossy accents and Aleen's clear gel glue. It's strong and has a lot of tackiness to it but let's you move pieces a bit if need be.

I use Tombow's liquid glue, but in the blue bottle, not the white. Also Glossy Accents, but I hate how if it oozes out it dries glossy and I can see it.

I like Beacon's 3 in 1 more than Zip Dry, but that could just be personal preference.

Another vote for Scotch Quick Dry. It's THE BEST liquid glue I've ever used, and I think I've tried them all.

Paper to paper, I like Zip Dry. If I'm using any sort of fabric, I like Fabri-Tac. For dimensional stuff, I like Glossy Accents. And, for teeny tiny things, I like Tombo's MonoAqua with the fine tip.

I have glue issues!
