Instructions

Step 1

Gather your supplies and prepare the Glasses case

Gather your supplies and begin by wiping away any dust on the shoe with a damp cloth and leaving it to dry overnight.

Step 2

Prepare the glue

Fill the Crystal FX Glue Syringe with enough E6000 Plus Resin Glue for your project, be careful to not take more glue than you need. The easiest way to do this is to place the end of the syringe inside the nozzle of the E6000 Plus glue tube and pull the plunger on the syringe while gently squeezing the tube of glue. This will transfer the glue from the tube to the syringe with minimal mess and exposure to the air.

Step 3

Guard against air bubbles in the glue syringe

Once the glue is transferred you are likely to have a small air bubble in the syringe, hold the syringe vertically so that the bubble floats to the opening at top and gently push on the stopper, pushing the air out until there is only glue left inside. You can then attach the needle tip, completing the syringe.

Step 4

Give yourself a guide for your design

For this embellishment project we are following the specific circular stitching on the glasses case. You can change the design of this and follow the same steps if you wish but quantities may vary.

Step 5

Apply the glue

Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out a thin layer of glue around the outline circular stitching and leaving it for 5 to 10 minutes to get tacky. Be careful to not apply too much, otherwise you will risk the glue running in unwanted directions. We also advise doing this stage in small sections this is to minimise the risk of accidentally touching the glue while it’s still wet or risk the glue running.

Step 6

Place the crystals

Use the Wax Picker Tool to gently place the SS16 Black Diamond Estella Crystals onto the glue. Try to keep the crystals close together with as few gaps as possible for the best effect.

STEP 7

The nose cover and lighting bolt

Once you have completed your two eye circles and your glue has dried, you can move onto embellishing the non-stitched parts. Using a steady hand, place a symmetrical semi-circle between your two embellished circles, ensuring both ends of the semi-circle match the other on the other side. Wait for this section to dry before creating your lightening bolt and embellishing your crystals on top! Be careful as to not do this part first as it might interfere with the rest of your design.

STEP 8

Let the glue dry

Tidy up the edges with Isopropyl alcohol if needed and let it dry overnight, once the glue is safely dry you can turn the glasses case to see if you have missed any gaps.
