Add a Little Shine to Your Winter Cover

By Roseann

 

With winter in full swing we are all bundled up.  I happen to be a big fan of the layered look, but sometimes our layers need a bit of pizzazz.   Fortunately M&J offers enough bling at the right cost, so you can bedazzle any of your outerwear.  Some ideas may include adding Swarovski rhinestones to fingerless gloves a knit cap or a scarf.  Take advantage of Old Man Winter’s hostility and wear some fun accessories.

M&J Trimming offers two types of Swarovski rhinestones, hot fix and flat back

Hot fix rhinestones are applied to garments using heat, the adhesive is already fixed to the back of the stone.  To apply hot fix rhinestones you may use an iron or the preferred method by using a rhinestone hot-fix setter.  To learn more about using hot-fix setters please watch our video.

Flat back rhinestones are applied to garments using glue.  There are two types of glue we recommend for this type of application.  Depending on what type of project you are working on we recommend either E 6000 craft adhesive or Gem Tac permanent adhesive.  E 6000 is an industrial strength adhesive and works great on projects that require a stronger bond, such as outdoor plant potters.  E 6000 is also gentle enough to be used on clothing and is washer and dryers safe, however the curing time takes about 24 to 72 hours.  Gem Tac is also a permanent adhesive that is safe for clothing, washer and dryer safe, and dries clear in about 10-20 minutes.
