Hi, this is Kat with beadaholique.com and dive in I want to start with the gem tack and this is a permanent glue and this is what we recommend for most surfaces and you can actually use this on fabric as well so as you can see here it says embellished jeans phones purses shoes glasses and more so this is actually great and this is a good glue to have on hand because it actually also works with various other items not only rhinestones but also glitter and that kind of thing like that so gem tack is a really good glue to always have on hand and then I'm just going to move on to another great glue that we always recommend in our projects and this is the e6000 now this is an industrial-strength adhesive and this is what's probably going to be best if you're gluing your rhinestones to a hard surface this is not recommended if you want to glue it to any type of fabric it just won't have the same type of hold as something else well so the next we have we have the GS hypo cement which actually comes in a regular formula as well as a fabric formula and I just want to show this one to you real quick because the neat thing about the GS hypo cement is that it comes with a great little applicator tip that is a pinpoint tip and you're going to see that when I pull it out there's a nice little tip right there so this is great to use if you're going to be doing any type of fine work and you just slide the pin right in there so the glue will always come out nice and smooth so that's another really great one that we recommend especially if you're doing any type of fine work and like I said it comes in regular and go ahead and get the fabric if you're going to be gluing your rhinestones to any type of fabric so next I'm going to move on and I'm going to talk to you about the bejeweler Pro we do have a full video showing you exactly how to use this and I just want to let you know that this is typically for the hotfix crystals swarovski makes these crystals that have a glue on the back that kind of melts when you heat it up and that's what this does so this will help you with the hotfix and be sure to watch the full video on that I'll tell you exactly how to do it and then I just wanted to highlight a couple other products that we have that will help you apply your rhinestones we have something called the magic pick by beadsmith we have a full video for this one as well but it just helps you as you can see in this little drawing they have here helps you pick up your rhinestones nice and easy and this one is the jewel setter or the perfect positioner and these are just tacky wax like kind of applicators so you can easily pick up your jewels and then one of my favorite products which has helped me quite a bit is called the magical tray and this is something where you can just put your rhinestones in there shake it and they all turn right-side up so that way you can use your magic pick to just go ahead and pick them up so you don't have to keep flipping them over as you work so it kind of makes a nice little tray and it keeps them all together on your work surface so overall I will say that when you're gluing rhinestones make sure that you let it dry for at least 24 hours if you're gluing especially on to a fabric I would wait three to seven days before washing or wearing it just to make sure that the glue has really set really dried especially if you're working in a humid climate at all you're definitely going to want those to stay stay put so there you have it I hope this helps you apply your rhinestones and gives you a better idea of which glue to use for your project you can find all of these supplies and more videos at beadaholique.com you
