How to Stick Rhinestones to Glass. Adhering stuff to glass takes a special kind of adhesive. The trick is to find a strong adhesive that dries super-clear when you're dealing with glass. Experimenting with several kinds is fun, but if you want to skip all the mess and expense, buy yourself some Household Goop. It's perfect for non-porous surfaces like rhinestones and glass. Here's how you use it.
Things You'll Need
- Glass jar, votive candle holder or the like
- Flat-back rhinestones
- Household Goop adhesive
- Paper or plastic disposable plate
- Well-ventilated area
- Paper towels
- Glass cleaner
Clean your glass surface with glass cleaner to remove oils and other residues.
Squeeze out about a half-dime sized amount of Household Goop on to your disposable plate. It's best to work near an open window.
Using a toothpick, dab some Household Goop adhesive on to the back of the rhinestone, and another small dab on the glass where you want to place the rhinestone.
Let them partially cure (or dry) on both the glass and the rhinestone for 2 to 5 minutes, then press the rhinestone (with the partially-cured adhesive on the back) on to the partially-cured adhesive on the glass.
