|Posted: 12/12/2012 8:48:15 AM|I have a couple dozen colors that I rarely use -
do they dry up or get clumpy ??
I ask because in the past I had those paint dauber things and they
dried up after only a few months . That was a BIG waste of $$$

I haven't had a problem so far. I do have to take my paper piercer to the tip to unclog it though but then it works fine.

I think they can if you don't use them for a long time. One thing that helps is storing them inverted. I find I have more issues with the non-Stickles glitter glues. They clog up and dry out pretty fast.

I've had my stickles for 3 or 4 years and haven't had an issue. Like a previous poster said they work better if stored upside down, I store mine that way and don't even have to unclog the tip.

I'm not sure if they go bad. If they get clogged, good luck.

I know I have had some for YEARS (like 5-6) and they are still good. I don't store them upside down.
Now that I'm here, I have nothing clever to say!

I have all different sizes and them. I have 2 of the glitter glue organizers, cartridge storage organizer, photo cases, die organizers and lots of the 12x12 organizers in clear, green, purple and pink!

I store mine upside down as well. I haven't had them dry up, but I had one separate and it seems no amount of shaking will combine it( my house has been shaking the bottle for weeks, it's a contest now!).

I hope not! I bought about 20 bottles and haven't used them that much.
I do store mine upside down, on velcro under a shelf so I hope they stay good.
|Posted: 12/13/2012 6:21:22 AM|I've only had one dry up and one separate and both were purchased in the late 90s. They were stored upside down. So I'd say Stickles are good for at lest 10 years.

I have had most of mine for between 5-9 years, and I've never had one dry up on me--either regular or distress stickles. They are kind of the Twinkies of glue products, they never go bad!

How do you store them upside down? The top is too small for them to balance upside down. Do you have a special storage rack that allows for this?

google glitter glue organizer and an case comes up that holds 48
7 years to get here... So now what?

I do the upside down storage with Velcro dots on the bottom of a shelf too. It's great because they take up no space and its easy to see the colours. The only thing is that sometimes I find them on the floor because the Velcro tab has come loose. I just add a dab of glossy accents to hold the tab in place on the bottle!
