  • Help With Adhesives To Use With Swarovski Crystals Please

    I am trying to find out which glue is suitable for Swarovski Crystals on to leather shoes. I have tried so many different ones but nothing seems to hold them apart from Superglue which then destroys the foil backing! Any helpful advice would be much appreciated. Thankyou

    I use E6000 - Google it for a supplier - and have stuck Swarovski crystals onto metal with it. Takes a while to dry but is well worth it.

      Thanks for your reply blackwillow. I have already tried E6000 and it didn't work I'm afraid plus I don't really like using it because of the cancer warnings on the tube. Appreciate your help though :-)

        i make cards and pinflair silicone glue is meant to stick anything to anything. one of the demonstrators shows a tin with anything known to man stuck onto it, might be worth a go.

          The only Swarovski crystals I have ever got to stick onto my leather dance shoes have been the pre adhesive backed ones you apply with a special hot melt applicator iron.

            Thanks for the replies :-)
            I have tried Hot Fix crystals and that didn't work either.
            I will try the Pinflair glue, basically I am just going to try every glue I can find until I find something that works!
            I know there is a glue that works as I have seen leather shoes with Swarovski crystals on them, but no-one will let me into their secret!!

              How very strange, I have used them for years on my dance shoes, leather and fabric, and they get a lot more wear and tear than an ordinary shoe. Hope you find a solution.

                Have you tried UHU (think thats how tou spell it) I used to attach diamontes to my shoes with this when I danced. Leave overnight to dry. Good thing is it's a bit rubbery so should rub off if you get it in the wrong place. Watch your foil backing though, it can distort some.

                  I use Gemtac for sticking non hot fix swarovskis onto veils although I don't know how it would work on leather shoes. You could also try GS Hypo Cement although again, I've never tried it on leather shoes.

                  Good luck!

                    That would have been my next suggestion as hotfix if usually pretty fab with everything.
