I am covering a sofa that needs gimp applied to it. I already purchased a heated glue gun. Can someone please give me some directions on applying this gimp without getting glue all on the fabric.

There is a tip that is flattened on the end. This is what I use. It takes a little practice to apply the glue where you want it. Until you get the feel for it apply it to the gimp and then set the gimp in place. Do a section about 6" long at a time so the glue doesn't cool before you apply it. Take your time and you will get a feel for it. Don't put to much glue on or it will soak through the gimp.
