For this project you are going to need a large flat, well-lit area to neatly spread out your tools so that everything is in easy reach for the rhinestone embellishment and so that you can leave it to dry without risk of disturbance.
Clean the champagne glasses
Ensure that the champagne flutes are completely clean and ready for gluing. Loose fibres and grease can interfere with the rhinestone embellishment.
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.
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.
Apply the glue
Use the loaded syringe to squeeze out a thin layer 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. 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.
Place the rhinestones
Use the Crystal Picker Tool to gently place the Swarovski Crystals onto the glue. Be sure to make full use of the different sizes available in the Crystal Size Mix and flex up and down in crystal size to best fill the available space. Try to keep the crystals close together with as few gaps as possible for best effect. For this we are using the Scatter Embellishment Style, and you can see we’re working in sections to ensure all the crystals can be laid down before the resin glue sets.
Top Tip - E6000 Plus Resin Glue has a work time of approximately 20 minutes so only put down as much glue as you can cover with rhinestones within that time.
Let it dry
Tidy up the edges with Isopropyl alcohol if needed and let the completed champagne flute dry overnight.
