E6000 alternative??

Chloe, on June 25, 2013 at 8:02 PM Posted in Do It Yourself 0 11

I am rhinestoning my cake topper and the e6000 is the most absolute terrible glue! Any alternatives?

    I have that same question for that exact reason. I don't like e6000 either.

    I know. I took the cap off and it started oozing out. It wasted so much coming out on the plate without me even squeezing it. It dried and gummied up. Lol we need help

    You can buy it in different forms, ie. spray. Honestly, when I was rhinestoning my shoes, I attempted to use many different kinds and nothing compared to how the E6000 worked.

    Perhaps others have some suggestions, but I personally think E6000 is the best for that sort of project!

    I bought the E6000 glue after seeing everyone say good things about it, but after using it on a few things I am really afraid of putting it on my shoes for rhinestones, and decorating other things with this glue. It is like glue from a hot glue gun. I think I might end up sticking to using Gorilla Permanent Glue instead.

    Try using the spray adhesive, it's like spray paint but, of course glue. I've used it in my ballet costumes as well as on props for performances and it works every time. (For small additions not bigger things that a glue gun needs to help with.)

    I used this glue for the shoes in my avatar pic. My tips are to use it with a toothpick and never squeeze the bottle. Let it ooze out a little and wait until it crusts up a little around the edges and you should be fine.

    I've never had good luck with E6000, and I've tried so hard! ABballerina, were your rhinestones on parts of the costuming that kind of moved, or mostly stayed in place while dancing? Do any of them pop off? I'm so bad with this glue, lol. Maybe I'll try the spray adhesive. How do you keep it from drying up while you're applying things, though, or from spraying all over something (like already-applied rhinestones) and getting it gummy and gluey?

    Use a toothpick. I also use Aileens craft glue for almost everything.

    ACK! I wish Buffee was here. She used it for her cake topper and shoes. She said she used a Q tip and brush to gently apply the glue.
