Thanks, ya'll! It's becoming a passion... I love doing this. I rarely get my daughter to let me do it on her since it takes so long to wear off, but she definitely likes this better than face paint these days (she's almost 16)

Squiggle, Did you try mixing the prosaid glue and creme yet? I think I saw someone on a forum somewhere say that's a good way to thicken the glue but never saw any confirmation. I ordred some freehand glue from YBody but it's really expensive. My friend did a necklace/back piece on me for my wedding and it was beautiful, but it didn't last very long... it was peeling off within 24 hours, unlike regular glitter glue. I'm hoping that this prosaid/cream mix is thicker but also still long lasting. If you have any input that would be great!

I use a 20 needle (not really a needle) yellow tip with a one ounce luer lock bottle and I go all day without it clogging. If it's been a few minutes since I've used it I will squeeze a drop out on another surface to clear it and prevent a blowout on the design. I have a needle cap I put over it between clients. Then at the end of the day I remove the tip and put it on a two ounce bottle filled with rubbing alcohol - 90 proof, and squeeze a lot of alcohol through the tip into another 2 ounce bottle. I can keep going back and forth between my two 2 oz bottles so I don't waste alcohol, until it starts looking a bit gunky and then I dump it. All my bottles have luer lock caps so I don't have to worry about spilling any of it. When I'm done I can put the black caps back on the bottles of glue and two bottles of alcohol, and I've never had a spill. If I'm in a rush because i have to leave or I just forget to clean the tip out a fine [b]beading needle fits in the size 20 tip perfectly to clear the clogs so you can run alcohol through it.

Another trick I use is to take the large white 17 applicator tip and use it to fill my lip gloss applicators. It's a lot easier to pour my glue into my 1 ounce bottle and then squeeze it into the lip gloss container then it is to use the pipette that one of the retailers sells.

I checked out Henna Caravan and they have most of what I use, but don't carry the needle cap or the black caps. I'm not sure how much my needle cap keeps the applicator tip from clogging, because while the luer lock seals it, there is still air inside of it, but I couldn't live without my little black caps. It's the beauty of the luer lock system. Maybe because henna doesn't last long there is no point in a cap, but I love my cap because my glue lives in my bottle and I never have to worry about spills.

Hope this helps.

When I do the freehand glitter art, I try to keep it as far away from my hand as possible, otherwise it does peel fairly quickly. I try to start just at the bend of the wrist and go up the arm. When I do that, and I keep the glue from getting too thick, it tends to stay until I take it off. I've never let it go past about a week because I get tired of it, so I don't really know how long it would stay past that. If the glue is took thick when put on then the glitter just peels right off.

Thanks! I have been experimenting on various people/body parts to see what lasts. I appreciate the help. Smile

I've been wondering... would the metal liquid bling bottle and tip work as glitter glue applicator? I've never tried glitter tat before.

I've been using a paintbrush and the 'Amerikan Body Art' brush holder jar with 90% alcohol in it for my freehand. I just found another type of bottle I'll be trying out that sounds like the kind discussed here.

Here are some examples of freehand with a brush. I wish I could figure out how to photograph glitter better. It loses so much on film.
