Since yesterday I reviewed the Mod Melter, I thought it would be helpful for you to see a comparison of my favorite hot glue gun, the AdTech Hybrid, and the Mod Melter- in action!
Enjoy this video I have for you, and I’d love to hear your comments!

Thanks for that tutorial/comparison. This is the first time I have seen the “Mod Melter Tool”…and I have to agree with you–love the standing glue gun–and if I ever do molds–I would think about the Mod Melter for that purpose. Great tutorial!

Jenny – I really enjoy your posts and you have described many many items that I didn’t know about. I wouldn’t purchase all of them however, it’s good to know what’s out there. I appreciate the information that you provide. Thank you. Georgia
I was wondering what else you use in the molds aside from the mod melts? I’ve used plaster, texture paint, varnish, glossy accents and several kinds of mod podge. I find the mod melts to be very expensive and I am looking for some comparable products. Any thoughts? (I just bought some UTEE, but I don’t have a melter yet)
I have the molds but, have not tried the mod melts. To be honest, I’m awkward with the glue gun so, the Mod Melter looks like it just might work better for me. I’m curious: can you use traditional glue sticks in the Mod Melter? Currently, I use my molds for polymer and paper clay mostly and sometimes with UTEE. I do have the Melting Pot but, I think you could pour the UTEE into the molds and melt it with a heat gun. I don’t know. Maybe Jenny has tried it? Anyway, thanks Jenny for all your awesome reviews! OH! I just thought of something else that might work in the molds; Martha Stewart Glass Paints. It would probably take a week to cure enough to remove the mold plus additional curing time. Might be worth the wait though. Thanks again.
Maureen- I use polymer clay, paper clay, plaster of paris, resin, and even chocolate in my molds. I probably wouldn’t use a paint as it would take forever to dry and have some weird shrinkage.
My mod melter barely drips out. It does not flow out like on your video. It actually makes the liquid very thick and seems very slow flowing. What am I doing wrong???? Please help!?
Deirdre- it sounds like your mod melter might not be Getting hot enough before you use it, or you have an issue with the trigger mechanism. Try letting it pre-heat for 5-10 minutes before using. If it still is thick/hard to pull the trigger, return it as defective.
