Ensure that the passport protector is clean and if the case is shiny, gently buff the surface with sandpaper so that the surface becomes matt, this will provide a ‘key’ for the glue to grip to, ensuring a strong bond with the resin glue and crystals. If your protector has a faux leather finish the texture provided will likely be enough for the glue to grip.
Fill the Crystal FX syringe part way with E6000 resin glue and cover a small section of the passport protector with a thin layer of glue. Allow 10 minutes for the glue to become tacky, this section of glue will have approximately one hour of work time before it starts drying and will take 24 hours to fully cure.
Use the Magic Sorting Tray for storing the crystals and use the Wax Picker Pen to pick up and place each rhinestone onto the passport protector in a tight scatter embellishment style. When filling a shape, it is best to start with the outline and work your way in. Try to leave no spaces between your crystals for the best result.
Work your way across the first side of your passport protector until you reach the spine of the case, allow the glue to fully set on the first side before flipping it over and embellishing the other side. It is best to leave the item to dry overnight to avoid knocking crystals out of position by touching the object when the glue is not yet fully cured.
When all the glue has fully dried you can wipe the rhinestones with a cloth or some tissue to remove any waxy residue that may be left on the crystals from the wax picker pen.
