how to use body glue??

Post by bubbleblossom on Wed Feb 04, 2015 10:02 pm

I can't remember which brand I purchased but its got a light purple lid and I'm assuming a clear tube as it's currently full and white... I can't seem to make it work??

My first attempt was with a 2cm gem. it fell off in a few mins even after holding it down a bit. At a party I used a half a centimeter gem and it also fell off.... Teeny tiny mini ones stick okay.


Is there a trick to gem application with glue or do I have a dud body glue?

Yes, there is a trick to that glue...
place a thin layer of glue in the area you want your gem to be placed. If you are prepping the area... wipe it clear of face paint with a damp q-tip, and dry it with the other end. Blob on the glue thinly.
Paint and do your extra special starbursts and dots to give the glue about 30 seconds, or more if the child is sweaty... and then pop on the gem when the glue gets tacky.

If the glue gets frozen, it is the same as throwing it away. I suspect that it does not freeze in Australia.

Happy Painting!

I prefer Prosaid.
I have never tried the Gem Adhesive before.
I make 'Gem Clusters".
I lay out a short strip of shipping tape and I pop a large gem on the sticky side and nestle some smaller gems around to create a larger, custom gem cluster.
I glue them on with Prosaid.
It holds them, and makes those princess faces astonishing.

I use Quo latex free eyelash glue.

Dries fast, and there is no waiting for it to get tacky. Also goes over face paint, so i don't have to clean the area. SUCH A TIME SAVER!

It's cr@p for fake lashes, but great for gems!

Thank you so much bubble. ^.^

I went to college for Special FX makeup for TV and film. Since then my product knowledge sky rocketed, as well as getting tons of tips and tricks I can use with my face painting. And vice versa. Wink 

I pride myself on finding the best product for each job. And I love it when some one shows me something better then what I'm using!

I remember the first time i saw mini mesh laundry bags clipped to the side of the table, it blew my mind.

MoonLight Tattoo Gel Glitter Glue Body Glue, you can get it on Aliexpress, I use it only for gems so I don't have the girls coming back with the gems in their hands at party, is the same glue that comes in the tulip glitter tattoo kit.
