To embark on this magical DIY journey, you'll need a few essential items listed above. Start by filling the Syringe with enough glue for your project, be careful to not take more glue than you need. The easiest way to do this is to remove the plunger from the back of the syringe and then slowly squeeze the glue into the tube, so that the glue gently runs down one side without reaching the opening at the other end. It is important that air can pass out the other end without affecting the glue inside at this stage. Then reinsert the plunger as carefully as you can – you will face resistance because the seal needs to be airtight, the plunger is successfully reattached when you hear it pop into place.
Guard against air bubbles in the glue syringe
Once the plunger is securely back in, you are likely to have a section of air inside the syringe. To fix this simply hold the syringe vertically so that the glue slides down away from the opening at the top and gently push on the plunger, pushing the air out until there is only glue left inside. You can then attach the needle tip (we used the pale pink tips for precision), completing the syringe.
Apply the glue
Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out various glue dots along the rose petals and leaves and in any other locations where you want some sparkle. With some of the dots you will want to apply thin lines at the tip of the petal along the top to create a frostier look while the dots towards the lower sides of the petals will act as dew drops. We also recommend choosing locations in the design to scatter and mix the variety between dots and lines for a more organic finish, such as higher surfaces to have slightly more glue as they are the areas where dew and frost would first encounter the rose.
Prep the Preciosa Crystal Faerie in the Magic sorting tray ready for dipping
Next, you will want to let the rose rest for a few minutes for the glue to get tackier, because if the glue is too fresh, the Preciosa Crystal Faerie dust will not evenly stick and may clump. While you wait for the glue you want to fill a magic sorting tray with the FAERIE stardust ready to dip your rose into.
Ready to dip
After allowing the glue to get tacky you will want to begin by carefully dipping each glue segment unto the magic sorting tray filled with Preciosa Crystal Faerie. It is best to work from the stem up starting with the lower leaves first and dipping the petals of the rose last. If the dipping method does not get into tighter more enclosed spaces such as between the petals, you could sprinkle from the corner of the sorting tray into the tight gaps, for the crystal faerie to fall onto the glue and then simply shake the rose upside down to let the excess fall back into the pot.
Leave to dry
Allow the rose to dry standing upright, we placed ours with the bottom of the stem in a taller cup. You will know it is dry when you can no longer see any white glue, this is because Fusion Tack Glue dries clear as well as waterproof.
