UHU product review


A while ago I received 3 UHU products to review. I got the UHU twist & glue, UHU scrapbooking pen, and the UHU glue roller.

UHU Twist and Glue--A+
I love the fact that this glue has a dispenser that twists and can release different widths of the glue. Twist it one way and the glue comes out in a tiny line, twist it the other way and the glue goes on in a thick line almost an inch thick. I used this glue to glue designer paper to 50 chipboard coasters. It went on smoothly, dried quickly, and didn't wrinkle the paper. I was almost sad using it for that many coasters because I didn't want to use it all up. Love this stuff! Definitely go get some and try it out!
UHU Scrapbooking pen--B
This glue comes out in a gel like form. I thought I was really going to like it, but found it was just okay. It says that it doesn't wrinkle paper, but the first time I used it, I tried to glue down cardstock and I thought the glue wrinkled up the paper where I put it. Maybe I just put too much on, I don't know. In all fairness I tried using the glue again and it did a much better job. I think I would use it on other projects, but not as a "scrapbooking" glue pen.
UHU glue roller--A-
This glue roller is non-permanent, says it right on the case, so that was good to know before starting to use it. I like that the adhesive comes out in tiny dots so it doesn't get stuck coming out and jam the cartridge. I found this product good for adhering masks that needed to stay down for just a bit when stamping or when working on positioning something that I wasn't ready to glue down yet. Being not permanent I don't know how much I will use it, but it is great to have around!
