Hi everyone this is Tracy Gonzales with TierraCast I'm here at to show you how to add some bling to a flat cork, a rubber or other strap design using Swarovski SS 34 flatback crystals and TierraCast glue-in rivetables. The process is pretty easy just determine where you want your components. You can use a ruler or just eyeball them and mark where you want your holes using a pencil or an awl or something like and punch a hole with hole punching pliers two millimeter which is the smallest setting if your material is very soft or stretchy and 2.5 millimeter if you're material is thick or stiff. Then put a rivet post through the hole from the back, put your glue-in component over the top of the post set the cap on top of that and squeeze them together set that onto a bench block and set the four millimeter rivet setter onto the top and whack it a few times with the hammer until that rivet is set then use some GS Hypo cement or other jewelry adhesive, whatever your preference is around the inside edge and the top of the rivet inside the component and set your flatback crystal into it and allow it to dry and that's it there are other videos available in the library to show you how to set the Z hooks and also more information about riveting. This is Tracy Gonzales from TierraCast, guest designer for showing you how to bling your design using Swarovski flatback crystals and TierraCast glue-in rivetable components. Thanks for watching.
