  • Attaching Mirrors

    I would like some in help on attaching mirrors on to hair ties and other things. I don't want them to fall off. I will be putting the mirror in the center and beading around the mirror. Any info or suggestions would be great.

    The following products have been effective for me.

    jewel and glitter glue found at my favorite places... Hobby Lobby or Walmart. Also E6000. Both work very good.

      Glue works for me!!!!

      I like to use glue,~ crazy glue and a hot glue gun, that seems to work for me. I also let the glue dry with a book on top to add a bit of weight.
      though no one can go back & make a brand new start, anyone can start from now & make a brand new end!

        e-6000 and let it form a "lip" around the edges if possible, but not too thick.
        Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

            Gorilla glue works very well too, its easy to use on felt and is very hard to come off

                Aging Bone Hairpipes
                by traddancer553
                I have some artificial bone hairpipe I'm trying to age. I've sanded off the outer coat and have used tea but I can't seem to get it any darker. Does anyone know another way?

                What does everyone use?
                I'd like to get some dual-roach pins going on, maybe with some streamers in the front, but I have no idea what to use or how to bead them. Anyone have any suggestions?
                ;) thanks
