Default What is the proper glue to use?

I have been using a glue gun all along (haven't been making bows too long), but is there actually some proper glue out there to use? I don't like using the glue gun as the glue is so bulky and messy. I don't know enough about bow making to know what the right glue is. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

You will find out through trial and error. Oh, and lots and lots of practice. After a while you will get a feeling for what works for you and what you are comfortable with. One person loves one brand of glue gun and someone else will swear by something else. It will come down to personal preference after you have worked at it for a while. Have fun and welcome to the forum.

Click on the search feature on the top and you should be able to find numerous posts related to the different glues out there. I always tell everyone they are better off using the SEARCH engine on here or Bling and Google. You can find tons of info through the internet just like I did.
