For cell phone decorations, USB flash drives, clutch, key ring and other hard objects, use crystals cold fixation. They have a flat bottom, and the color of the stone determines amalgam. For reliable and high-quality gluing, use an epoxy two-component glue, which can be purchased at any hardware or automotive store.
Degrease the surface that you are going to decorate, wiping it with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol. Prepare glue. In equal proportions to squeeze out of the syringes into the prepared dishes of both and mix thoroughly. Do not use all the glue immediately, but just such a quantity, which is enough for 10 to 15 crystals.
Points apply glue to each of the 10 – 15 decorative elements. Using toothpicks and cotton swabs, move, and attach them to the paste surface, having conceived pattern.
Focus on work and not be distracted, because the glue dries very quickly. Only during work you can have time to fix the picture or delete using the same toothpicks excess glue.
When the first dozen rhinestones will be fixed, again, dilute a small portion of glue and glue another group of crystals.
For decoration of textiles use hot glue rhinestones. Their bottom is caused by the composition, which adheres the surface, melting when heated. Attach rhinestones to fabric and for some time that iron place iron on the reverse side.
If the crystals must be glued or loose pattern, use of special or ordinary household soldering iron of 40 watts. Take the paper printed a picture, circle it fine. Attach the sheet to the product that you are going to decorate down with chalk.
Gently swiping across each line only once, trace the pattern with a pen or pencil. Remove paper. On textiles will remain the translated by the chalk drawing. Gently remove the excess chalk moistened cotton swab or eraser.
Lay out a pattern of rhinestones. If it is your first job, use the same size for the large crystals.
Within 7 – 10 seconds, hold the heated soldering iron on the back side of each element. After heating, place each crystal on to the textile surface, observing him put the place in the picture.
After fixing all the rhinestones on the wrong side of the product at the location of the picture put the iron, heated to medium temperature. Leave for 20 seconds. Remove the iron and check if all crystals are firmly glued.
