    The best thing I've found for mixing, storing, & applying 50/50 white glue & water, is just an Elmer's glue bottle.

    Eye droppers will work, but a pipette is just a rigid tube of some kind. Picture a drinking straw, only smaller. Put one end in the liquid to be transferred, put your finger over the other end, pull it out and put it where you want the liquid to go, and take your finger off the end. Viola.

    belg, I don't know where in NJ you are, but pipettes like the ones shown by Vic are sold at F&M Hobby in Denville, I get mine there.

    sounds like one of those coffee stir/ straws. Heck you can go to the gas station on the corner and pick up a hand full of those and a cup of coffee. Sounds good for adding a little glue to the base of my trees. The elmer's glue bottle sometimes is a little wide but that is what I usually use.
