How to glue things to ponies?
« on: September 29, 2019, 03:36:15 PM »
Hello again. I have some things that I'd like to glue to my customs (rhinestones, specks of glitter,  small beads) and I was wondering what type of glue I should use. Thanks!

For small things like that, especially the glitter, any kind of craft tacky glue should work fine. I use Aleene's Tacky Glue.

Bigger, heavier things you need something like E6000 or Loctite.

Don't use Super Glue for foil back rhinestones or glitter because it will dissolve them/the foil.

What about gorilla glue? Would that work for rhinestones, glitter, etc?

For glitter I use mod podge and sprinkle it over that.

As far as gorilla glue goes, I'd be wary about using it. Some of their glues expand as they dry.

I would not use gorilla glue (especially for glitter) I do ALOT of glitter ponys and what I do is mix the glitter with some Americana duragloss or gloss mod podge and use tacky glue for small findings like beads and rhinestones and add a coat of the gloss to help seal it, I have never had a issue with things falling off or with glitter rubbing off on to fingers this way

I use Loctite Super Control Gel for Rhinestones and I use Triple Thick Clear from DecoArt/Americana for glitter ;)

For things like rhinestones, sequins or similar things I have always used Gem-tac whether it's for ponies, costumes or other.
