Description

All glues are not made equal. Some are designed for paper alone, some work on fabric, and others are for multi-surface use.

Another question I have is about the longevity of gem tac. I am worried after time, does the gem tac deteriorate and the rhinestones loosen? (much like if you leave sellotape for a long time, it dries and becomes ‘brittle’). Controlled application is helpful for patterns or specific designs. It also minimizes wastage from excess glue oozing out and promotes neatness. Gem-Tac has a slow setting time of one hour and a 24-hour cure time. On the bright side, you get a longer window period to reposition crystals if you need to.

Cure Time:

The first consideration when choosing glue for crystals is tensile strength. Weak glue can cause you embarrassing moments when the crystals detach prematurely. I work with strong glues on daily basis and my worry is that can affect my clients – as I make dogs and babies accessories which stays close to their face. The bottle’s opening is not precise and releases uncontrollable amounts of glue. Its thin consistency doesn’t help either. You’ll be better off working with a syringe or precision cap as it is a small amount that gives sheer results. 2. Aleene’s Liquid Fusion Clear Urethane Adhesive These are familiar scenes for items handled or moved around frequently, like clothing, tumblers, phone cases, etc. Therefore, ensure you go for glue with superior strength and long-lasting hold.

I had thought about the Hotfix type, but thought glue is better for me. I also have a low temp glue gun but thought that would be difficult to use on fabric and those glue hairs drive me crazy! As my crystals are smaller, ss20, I will use Gem-Tac. Non-toxic, non-flammable, does not leave any residue on surface, no white haze, does not expand or foam-up while drying.The rubber like consistency when it sets makes it suitable to use when the article needs movement in it, as the crystals will not ping off. Therefore, it is important to use it sparingly to remain invisible behind the stone. This glue is solvent-based, but the odor is faint and not off-putting. 4. Shoegoo Mini Adhesive They are strong, clear, and water-resistant. Gem-Tac is our favorite because it is water-based and non-toxic, followed closely by Aleene’s liquid fusion. Final Thoughts
