What glue is best for rhinestones on fabric?
Posted by Rhinestones Unlimited on Mar 25th 2019
There are many glues on the market that work very well to glue your rhinestones to fabric. You may prefer one over another for ease of application or for performance for your unique project. Use a glue that will work with your fabric type. For instance, our customers love the original formula E6000 for tricky materials like leather, suede, velvet and vinyl. Some adhesives, like Flexible Stretchable, were formulated specifically to stretch with the fabric, but we’ve found that modern glues with a lighter viscosity like Gem-Tac or E6000 Fabri-Fuse are easy to apply straight from the bottle and are suitable for almost any fabric, stretch and non-stretch alike.

Remember to protect your work surface from glue that may seep through the fabric. If your material is sheer or thin, slip a barrier between layers of fabric. Brands of glue that we recommend are Eclectic (E6000); Beacon; Allene's; and, API Crafter's.
