Dress Up For Halloween Using Body Glue

3

By Milton

Halloween is just around the corner!  Add some elaborate looking elements to your costume this year without using elaborate amounts of energy!  A few rhinestones and feathers around your eyes are the perfect accent for Halloween this season. 

All you need is body glue, a wooden applicator (or something around the same thickness as a chopstick), beeswax, feathers, and rhinestones in your desired size and color.  Our rhinestone starter kit comes with all the essential tools (rhinestones and feathers not included).  Your design will stay on all night long and comes off when you are ready to remove it with soap and warm water.

Body Glue

Directions:

  1. I suggest sketching out a draft of your design before you begin gluing.
  2. Apply a small amount of beeswax (about the size of a pea) to one end of your wooden applicator.  You will use this to pick up the rhinestones from the top by lightly touching the wax end to the top of the rhinestone.  Once placed on some glue it should detach itself from the wax.  Sometimes a little nudge with your finger is necessary. 
  3. Dot the area around your eye where you want to apply rhinestones or feathers and begin to apply your rhinestones and feathers.  Make sure you are looking in a mirror or having a friend do this for best results!
  4. Let your design dry for about 5 minutes and you are ready to go!

New Body Glue

By Dara

Fall has officially arrived.  I’m sure some parts of the country are still a bit warm, but I can definitely feel the chilly breeze in New York.  Which reminds me that we have one month before Halloween.  This is a great time to introduce everyone to the “Body Glue”. 

A lot of M&J Trimming customers have been requesting for body glue.  So by demand, M&J decided to to stock up on the new merchandise to satisfy customers.  It literally is body glue and it’s about the same size as a mascara tube.  All you have to do is dab a tiny drop onto the area you’d like and then add rhinestones, loose sequins or half pearls.  This is also great for stage make-up.
