I am trying to do exactly what you did for your cake topper. I am using the same products you did, but my results are NOT turning out.

I'm having a hard time with the E6000 glue. It's getting very stringy and making the rhinestones look icky.

How did you use the E6000 glue?

Thanks!

    Yeah, E600 glue is a beast. If it hasn't set, you can roll the excess glue off or use fingernail polish remover. Do you have a rhinestone tool? https://www.rhinestoneshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=30&products_id=792

    I found one of these at Michaels and it helped a lot. I picked up each rhinestone with the tacky side, and moved it in place. I found it easiest to apply no more glue than I could stick in about 45 seconds or so since it dries so fast. I squeezed out just a little bit at a time to reduce the mess. I hope that helps. Good luck!

    I took a peek at the tool you mentioned. I was using a toothpick to apply the glue (and pick up the rhinestone) and another toothpick to place it on the topper. Maybe I was using too much glue.

    I just don't want the rhinestones to fall off. I should experiment with the glue and rhinestones to see how strong the glue is. After the dlue dried on the toothpick it seemed to just rub right off. It was still tacky but it doesn't seem to have the sticking abitlity that I thought it had. I guess I thought it was going to be more like super glue as far as being able to keep stuff in place.

    Not only that but I also thought that the tube of glue would have some sort of itty bitty applicator. There's just a big gaping hole. =)


    Thanks for your help! It just looks like I'm going to have to be very, extra careful with the glue.

    The glue takes about 24 hours to fully dry. Once it sets it's more like super glue and it flattens out for lack of a better description.
