Item to glue onto (We no longer carry the Resin Teardrop Slice Pendant used in this technique.)
Swarovski Elements Crystal Flat Back Rhinestones
Adhesive (we used Gem Tac)
4.25 inch Tweezers
Toothpick or other small object
Gem Tac will become tacky quickly and will dry clear.
Try using different items to glue onto such as wood, silk, metal or glass.
Choose an item to glue the flat back rhinestones onto. We have chosen a resin teardrop slice pendant.
Choose a color(s) of flat back rhinestones.
Squeeze a small amount of adhesive onto a scrap piece of paper.
Use a toothpick or other small object to "grab" a little bit of adhesive.
Add a small amount of adhesive to the item where you want the flat back to sit.
Use a pair of tweezers to pick up one flat back.
Place the flat back onto the adhesive.
Repeat steps 4 - 8 until you have glued desired number of flat back rhinestones. Glue will be completely set in 24 hours but stable in an hour.
