Step One -
As you can see the edges of the bare brad are raised a bit, so put a few dots of
Crystal Effects onto the head of the brad & spread it around until it covers
the top in a thin layer. I stuck my brad into a leftover piece of rubber so I
wouldn't have to hold it. I also made sure it was as level as possible. That's important later... you could poke yours through the top of a paper cup or something...
Step Two -
Apply glitter generously to the brad right after step one, before it dries. Now's when you'll be glad you propped your brad up. Let it dry for a while before moving on. Maybe 10 or 15 minutes.
Once it's not tacky any longer, squirt on some more Crystal Effects, and using the tip of the applicator, spread it around fairly evenly. The cool thing about this stuff is that it dries clear, and also adheres to itself.... so it will "help" you by spreading itself out as it dries... that's why it's important for the brad to be level.
Again apply a good layer of glitter before it dries... then let it dry for another 15 minutes.
Okay, this is the last time you'll apply Crystal Effects. Again, put a few drops on & spread it around... and then maybe even a few more! Make sure it thickly covers all the glitter. Remember, it will dry clear. Let it dry completely. I let mine sit for an hour or so...
I hope you get a chance to make some of these...
