We occasionally get asked: How do we replace missing rhinestones – what is the best glue?
Years ago, we recommended any ‘super-glue’, but currently, we have decided that the easiest glue to work with, is a glue named ‘Loctite Super-Glue–Control Gel’. This is what we use, when we need to glue anything that isn’t ‘HOT FIX’.
Why do we love it? Well, instead of being a runny, messy thin liquid, as most super-glues, it is thicker and easier to control. And it dries within a few seconds, not minutes or hours.
If you are still in the ‘stone ages’ (pun intended) in regards to your gluing habits and are still using a ‘tacky’ glue – modernize and pick up a Loctite bottle at your local hardware store. It is so much faster and less messy!
All you need is a little ‘dollop’ of the gel on the back of a rhinestone. (We use a T-pin, but a toothpick or a tweezers could also be used.) Then hold it in place for 15-20 seconds (by pressing down with a rubber guard on your finger) until the glue has dried. You will have a permanent, non-messy bond with your Swarovski rhinestone and your costume, dance shoes, handbag or Smart-phone case!
We ALWAYS use Swarovski rhinestones–‘HOT FIX’ with the glue already on the back, which attaches by heating up the glue (or use an ultra-sonic device) to attach the rhinestones. We can permanently fuse a rhinestone in a split second or up to 15-20 seconds depending on the size and location of the rhinestone. How about your rhinestone attaching methods? If they take longer and don’t permanently attach immediately, consider changing your methods.
