Step 1

Prepare the surface for embellishment.

Ensure that the bauble is completely clean and ready for gluing. If the plastic surface is shiny and you’re aiming for full solid crystal coverage, we recommend gently sanding it until there is a rough key. This will help to give the glue a texture to securely grip to, however sanding is unnecessary for individual crystals or if there is already a texture present.

Step 2

Set up the glue applicator with resin glue

Fill the Glue Syringe from the Resin Glue kit 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 push the glue from the tube to the syringe with minimal mess and exposure to the air.

Step 3

Guard against air bubbles in the resin glue

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. For this project we chose the 16 gauge purple applicator tip as it gives a smaller dot of glue.

Step 4

Apply a thin line of glue on the bauble

Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out a thin line of glue onto the bauble and leave it for a few minutes to get tacky. Be careful to not apply too much, otherwise you will risk the glue running in unwanted directions across the curving surface of the decoration. We also advise doing the embellishment in small sections when working on three dimensional objects to minimise the risk of accidentally touching the glue while it’s still wet.

Step 5

Begin placing the Preciosa Crystals

For this style of bauble we have opted for concentric lines which is a variation on the grid embellishment style. For more information on different embellishment styles, we recommend our Ultimate Guide To Rhinestone Embellishment which can be found on our website.


Allow the resin glue to fully dry

Tidy up any drifting glue and let it dry for minimum 2 hours, however drying times may vary depending on how thickly the glue was applied, once the glue is dry your newly blinged bauble is ready for the Christmas tree!
