I am not sure that there’s a way to do that. You just kinda have to deal with it. You will probably have less if you kinda wipe the end of the gun off after you put your dab of glue. Good luck!

It’s hard to avoid the glue strings, but the good news is that you can pretty much just pull them off once you’re done with your project. It may just look like it’s been attacked by the evil craft spider while it’s in progress.

You can try using a hair dryer on low to help with the stringy spiderwebs.  I also keep a bottle of aloe nearby– it doesn’t help with the hot glue strings.. but it does help when I get a little overzealous with the hi-temp gun. Happy crafting! 🙂

Currently I have no fingerprints……I am pretty sure they have been burnt off from hot glue.

Whatever I am doing, I am doing it wrong. You dont want my advice.


But in all seriousness, totally worth it

I don’t know if it’s practice or luck but I rarely burn myself or get ridiculous spider web’s. Personally I don’t use high temperature since it’s not usually necessary. When I glue I blob in before pulling back so I’m not sure if that helps.

I’m seconding E-6000. I think it is my new favourite glue, SO much stronger than hot glue and easy to work with.
