“Good Girl” Eau de parfum by Caroline Herrera rhinestones embellished using Bermuda Blue Preciosa Crystals from Bluestreak Crystals.

Do you have a perfume bottle that you have now used up, but it is so beautifully shaped that you want to treasure it as an ornament? Why not customise the surface with a layer of Preciosa Rhinestones? This simple tutorial will teach you the steps that will transform your favourite scent from a functioning Eau De Parfum to an object of aesthetic luxury for any room in your house.

Step 1

Prepare the perfume bottle for embellishment

Ensure that the perfume bottle is completely clean and ready for gluing. If the glass is shiny and you intent to completely cover the surface, we recommend gently sanding it until there is a rough key. This will help to give the glue a texture to securely grip to.

Step 2

Set up the glue applicator with resin glue

Fill the 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 remove the needle tip section and place the open end of the syringe inside the nozzle of the E6000 Plus glue tube, then 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 resin glue

Once the glue is in the syringe you are likely to have a small air bubble in with the glue, hold the syringe up so that the bubble floats to the top and gently push on the stopper, this will push the air bubble out so that there is only glue left inside. You can then twist on the needle tip, completing the syringe.

Step 4

Apply the glue to one side of the perfume bottle

Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out a thin line of glue onto the glass and leave 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 across the gently curving surface that can be found on most perfume bottles. We also advise doing this stage 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 rhinestones in the embellishment style of your choice

Use the Double Ended Wax Picker Pen to gently place the Bermuda Blue Preciosa rhinestones onto the glue. On this shoe design we chose undulating concentric lines that flex further apart and closer together depending on the width of the available space. This approach was chosen to enhance the contours of the shape and means that only one size of crystal is required on this irregular shape, which would normally require at least three sizes to accommodate the slopes and corners.


Allow the resin glue to fully dry

Tidy up any messy glue edges and let it dry overnight.


Congratulations you have completed the project!
