I just ordered enough supplies to make 240 Stefans so I've been practicing making glue domes on old elites and streamlines so I can find a good technique and I found a really "cool one".
If you run an ice cube on the outside of the dome it cools the outside but the inside is still liquid. This gives you 2 things one is that the tip doesn't drip and the other is that if you don't touch it for too long you can shape it with your hands. I was experimenting with round pointed and flat domes and it seems the flat ones are easiest.

... You are going to make glue domes????? Slugs are the thing these days, and are what is required at many wars. It is a waste of time and money to make glue domes. Just make slugs.

Scixer5: It is not a waste of time to make glue domes. Some wars still use them, & when they do, they have an aerodynamic advantage over slugs. Southeast wars still allow for all glue domes, with the exception of slingshot-weighted domes.
xXasskikaXx: If you've found something special with the production of glue domes, then great; make some domes. Hopefully you'll get to use them in a war soon.

TheNerfingFlamingo: REKT isn't the norm though. I was mainly referring to the NoMNEs & the like. But yes, there is the occasional "uncensored"-type war where even slingshot domes are legal.
Edit: Ah darn, should've put that in my first post.

The ice cube or cool water method is pretty common, but congratulations on coming up with it on your own.

Silicone isn't even the future, it is current, useable, and inexpensive. But it is not quick.

Xxxx, to my knowledge, slug style darts are the norm in the northeast US. Being from Massachusetts, you will likely never get to use them in your/my region. While glue domes are not outright banned in, say, the south east or the California nerf scene, don't expect to use your darts up in here.
