Where to buy...

Post by Alina0210 on Tue Mar 10, 2015 10:12 pm

Hey everyone.
I have gem and glitter for my facepainting but I have seen on some YouTube videos those little flower stickery things that you can put on designs... Hope u know what I mean. I Just wonder if anyone knows where I would get them from.

they have tons of little gems, flowers, etc, although they tend to be pricey, as they are sold by the sheet.

someone else may know a cheaper source, or maybe you can do a google search.

You can also try ordering your supplies off of online websites such as amazon or ebay. With some research you can find some great deals If you don't mind the wait for shipping. Smile

You can buy some in bulk for cheap off of aliexpress, such as these: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/1000-Mixed-Color-Acrylic-Flatback-Flower-Rhinestone-Gem-6mm-Diy-Craft-Embellishments/2003884157.html These ones don't have a sticky backing, but I find gems with sticky backings end up falling off very easily.

I've ordered various things from Aliexpress and have never been charged customs or duties on the merchandise. Although between processing time and shipping it takes about 2 months for things to get to Canada.

Oriental trading has gems too, after each holiday they have a big sale on the product, after christmas is a great time for getting snowflakes, after valentines day is great for hearts, and I would expect that after easter they'll have some flower gems.

I haven't ordered anything from oriental trading, and likely won't because I've heard that the duty charges on it are frequently more than the cost of the products ordered. Unfortunately shipping to Australia may be a similar case.

A couple of other posts on getting the gems to stick properly and different products people are using to adhere them.

to the OP, you can buy them at any craft store, even dollar stores some times. If you are hard core you can also make your own.

To Damaris:
If you post your question as a new topic you will be more likely to get the answer to your question. Also posting in the intro forum and filling out your profile wouldn't hurt, because if people have no idea what country you are from, they might have a hard time referring you to certain stores or online shops, as they might not be in or ship to your country.
