Ensure that the reindeer is completely clean and ready for gluing. Any grease or dust will affect the effectiveness of the glue.
Prepare the glue
Fill the Syringe with enough SuperTite Fusion Tack 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 covering 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, completing the syringe.
Apply a thin layer of glue on the reindeer
Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out a thin layer of glue onto the reindeer 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.
Begin placing the Serinity Crystals
For the reindeer we have opted for concentric lines starting from the outside and working your way in, 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 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 reindeer is ready to be hung on the wall!
