Just FYI - Sax sells YES Glue on page 208 of the catalog - $8.95 for a 16oz
jar.

I have never been able to find "Yes" glue - I can find the spot on the shelf
where it goes, but Michael's and Hobby Lobby never seem to have it in stock.
Wal-Mart hasn't even heard of it! *L* I have discovered that watering down
Elmer's glue (blue label!!!!) is very nice to work with - just paint it on
with a paint brush. The black label Elmer's is about worthless as far as I'm
concerned. I haven't used glue sticks since I spent hours during my student
teaching semester making examples, only to have all the stuff fall off the
first day I brought them out to use the following school year. I think we
all tend to get abit biased by our good and bad experiences! :-)

is this "YES" glue in lieu of regular white glue? I hate regular
white glue, so what I do (since I have gallons from previous art teacher,
still
after 5 years!!!) is pour out the regular white glue into containers with
lids
(small deli containers work great!) and leave the lids off. I might leave
them
out over the weekend. What happens is that the water evaporates leaving it
to the consistancy of tacky glue...which I love! Also, I use glue sticks
for
all paper gluing...my favorite is Prang purple glue sticks....but I am
currently suffering with Ross brand glue sticks...ugh!!!

Yes, Yes, Yes! It's Yes all the way. Once you try this, you'll be really
stuck on it...(oh, that was bad). I still use Elmers for many things because
it's inexpensive and does the job. I also only used to use Prang purple
sticks, my favorite glue stick brand, but Yes is much better than those. I
know several professional artists who use Yes for their collages. It's also
great for mounting work.
