Tools of the trade

25 Jan

This is the stuff I use for rhinestoning.  Various tins for holding the stones.  Flat bottoms are good, and if you have a lot of stones, use a separate tin for a smaller amount.  It is easier to pick them up if they are all in a single layer.  Alene’s glue.  Others may be great, but this is the first one I tried and see no reason to change as it works very well.  No smell to speak of and easy to use.  A stone picker-upper.  It probably has a name, but I bought it with the glue and don’t remember.  It is essentially a little stick with a glob of dental wax  on the end.  Form it into a point for picking up the stones and placing them.  Stones are full of lead so you don’t want to be handling them and the small ones in particular are tricky.

The old envelope is for testing glue and getting rid of the odd glob that forms.  There should be a fabric scrap in the photo for wiping the top of the glue bottle, as well.
