my glue experiment test

Post by roscka on Tue Sep 25, 2012 12:05 pm

i compared three of the following glues and this is the result a had over a several days. my friend also got a mini glimmer kit for her kids and said that the tattoos came off the next day. in a previous tread someone mentioned that the glimmer glue lasts the longest, but isn't that just pros-aide rebottled?

like i mentioned in previous post that i have found the the moonlight glue seems to last the longest, my only problem with it is that it is made in china and claims to be nontoxic. you just cant trust everything that is not made in the USA.

I love Moonlight glue. I bought a Moonlight kit that came with glue and bought some pros aide to try. The Moonlight lasts much better IMO. Have you ever bought the replacement glue they sell? Is it the same that comes in the kits?

you can't trust stuff not made in the US?? nothing we use is made in the US... NONE of the face paints, and I'm sure none of the glues either.

Perry, I think she just means because of the lead scares from China recently. Smile Event if a company is based in the US they probably outsource the actual product.

Ok warning I'm going to get on my soapbox and lecture. ---I only purchase paints, glues etc from reliable well known USA companies. Glue I purchase from glimmer, Amerikan body, Forum shop. Now I know that everyone thinks that it will never happen to you but in my other life (before facepainting ) I was sued for damages to a child from a product.

When you buy from a legitimate US company they will carry liability insurance. So there you will sit in a deposition room being tore up by the plaintiff attorney that you did not do everything in your power to purchase goods from a reputable company. The lawyer from the USA company you purchase from (along with your liability attorney) will be in the room with you defending his client but also defending you that you did take every precaution to buy your supplies from known legitimate sources.

After living through that deposition I cringe just thinking about how I would explain a China seller .

So what brand of paints do you use? Wolfe, Tag, DFX, etc are all made in China, Snazaroo, Kryolan, Grimas are all made in Europe... I don't know of any face paint brands that are made in the US

Like Perry, I'm genuinely curious - which paints do you use? I use mainly Snazaroo and Superstar (FAB), which are both from European companies. Snaz is handmade here in the UK.

I'm new to the whole thing and not sure which brands people consider good...and now I'm a little concerned that you (certainly more experienced than me!) feel only US brands are safe to use. Am I risking hurting children by using my European paints??? Crying or Very sad

Oh most everything we use is made in China - and the product that got us in trouble is made outside the country, but because it was purchased from a store in the USA who had liability insurance and the stores liability insurance was willing to stand up and say that I purchase only from reliable trust worthy sellers showing I was a professional and not just any back ally deal for a cheap price. This helped me cut our losses greatly - now we weren't at fault in anyway but in out of court settlements -someone has to pay to make the suit go away.

What happens is ---the child's lawyer names everyone -the person who injuried the child, the manufacture of the product, the store owner where the product was purchased etc. Now all these people have insurance and after brutal depositions they all join together to offer out of court settlements, but the problem with buying professional use products out of country is in that deposition and lawsuit you will be all alone and the entire burden of proving the product was safe and is manufactured in a safe manner with strict quality controls will now fall on you.

Now I admit after that experience I just don't trust it will never happen again and I just don't trust that China seller to help out in anyway. Our suit was twenty years ago but we settled for more than $100,000 divided up between all of us.

why don't you have entertainer's insurance?? That is what it's for. The store shouldn't have to be responsible for those claims.

Lawyers sue every entity involved in the case to get more money. So if I was only insured for 100.00. The store would be insured for 1000. And the manufactor is insured for 10,000. They start at the top and work their way down for the mosh cash for their client since they get paid on percentage won.

I think people were more vexed by the implication that only stuff from the US is "safe", when in actuality many other countries have equal or stronger safety requirements for paints and other cosmetic items. Snaz, for instance, is made in the UK and has one of the strongest safety records of any paint - it actually qualifies as a toy over here, which takes some doing as the law's really strict with that stuff in the UK.

I'm fairly sure Canadians aren't keeling over in their millions from using homegrown stuff, either - not talking about face paint specifically now, of course (I'm not informed enough to know if there are Canadian brands, sorry lovely Canucks!) but "stuff" in general. Laughing

I think the only thing we can say is MADE in Canada is maple syrup and Qualatex balloons... oh and all those car factories around here (oh wait a minute, all those cars have "made in the USA" stickers on them... oops maybe they weren't supposed to know that most of the assembly happens over here)... we actually have mostly raw materials that we export, other people make stuff with them and we buy it all back at ten times the price.

I am looking for a nonwaterproof glue to use with glitter tattoos.

We have a lot of parents at birthday parties who want to join in and get tattoos but want to go to work the next day and ask for a glue that is easy to wash off and does take "scrubbing", just a temporary for that day only thing. Does anyone know I glue I could use that is easy wash off? - Thanks

hopepaints,
Ybody sells water based glue that you can wash off. I bought one, but haven't tested it yet.

I've bought Snazaroo water soluable spirit gum for gems. Maybe this could work for glitter tattoos.

I don't know if it would work in very hot weather but that's never an issue here in Ireland.

Also, I think Paradise face paint is made in the USA.

The Glimmer water based glue is also suppose to be safe for the face. I havent tried it yet, but baby oil work real good at removing the glue without a lot of rubbing. Let it rest on it a bit before wiping off with a cotton ball.

Well, Misha sent me some Moonlight glue from her kit and I love it. I was really surprised that it was so nice...I've tried three different glues before this and this is the only one I've really been impressed with.

It seems to harden. You know how the others still stay sticky? This seems to harden up and grab the glitter. I'm going to do a full-blown side by side on my arm but this was on my inner wrist where it takes a lot of abuse and water and was still "whole" by day 4 with little drop off. Emma's has stayed on for 4 days even though her skin seems to repel glitter tattoos.

I'm excited to hear from Roscka if the bulk glue is the same as the kit glue.
