dog collars
« on: May 19, 2009 07:41:26 AM »

Hi, I am new here. I have been toying with making my dog a fancy collar so she will no longer be called a "he". sounds silly, but it's a craft and it's been fun. I have tried 3 glues on both nylon and leather with swarovski crystals and none have been sticking. Money is tight and I have these rhinestones I want to use, but to buy all of the glues, not to mention new collars is expensive. I am looking for simple answers from those that craft so here I am. Is there a glue that works better on nylon? How about leather? I have read that swarovski crystal rhinestones are hard to glue becuase of the foil on the back, is there a glue that is o.k. to use? Such a simple project has completely exhausted me, but I still want to finish it, any help would be greatly appreciated

Fabri-tac would probably work well for what you want to do.  That stuff sticks to anything.

not rhinestones, it isnt powerful enough to hold plastic to fabric or metal to anything

Have you tried E-6000? I just bought some at Michael's for $4, it's supposed to work on pretty much everything.

I've used Gorilla glue on lots of surfaces and it always works. Just be careful its one of those glues you don't wanna be too messy with or you might have some joined fingers by the end of the project. However it comes in a pen or tiny squeeze bottle.

You could use a Bejeweler Hot Fix pro.  They are made for swarovski crystals.  You can get one at Michael's for $8.  There is a 50% coupon this week.  Here's a link: http://printable-coupons.blogspot.com/2008/02/michaels-coupons-arts-craft-store.html
