Default rhinestoning question

not sure i "rhinestoning" is an official word, but it is now.

i have a question regarding the glue you guys find best to use with [swarovski] rhinestones. i usually use gem-tac and i'm generally very happy with it. i like that it dries clear and it holds really well. but there are some really small crystals i use that can fall off and have when i use the gem-tac. i don't want this to happen, that's for sure.

is it the E6000 you guys love? i like that the gemtac is in a squeeze bottle that the top is small enough to use as an applicator itself. would i only be able to use a toothpick or something with the E6000? what about the smell i've heard about?

thanks so much for any insight!

I've used E6000 in the past and it is hard to use because of end of the tube is too big for Rhinestones, but I have seen a small size in a package with 2 other glues. That might just work. Also the smell is kind of bad. It doesn't bother me too much. Good luck!

I use e6000 and it works fine, but you need to apply with a toothpick. I hardly smell anything. You need to be careful when you squeeze the tube, there is a lot coming out and it won't stop until you close the bottle, even if you only insert the toothpick, there's still glue coming out.

e6000 smells like the dry cleaners to me. I have never used it with rhinestones only gem tac.
