Give Your Kicks A Lift

We don't know about you, but sometimes we just want to add a new shine to our shoes, or maybe a little flair to our flops.
And what better way, than with some Crystal Clay!
And we LOVE the results!

We decided to experiment with some sandals. 
Make sure any part you will be using the Crystal Clay on is nice and clean. This will ensure the clay will stick. 
Here are the before pictures: 

All you need to do is mix the clay according to the directions. Then, apply it to the surface you want to bling out. We only applied to metal surfaces to be sure it would adhere properly. Add your crystal chatons and let it set! We dusted ours with eye shadow to add some extra shimmer!

Here is our finished result!

And there you have it! A small change, but a big result! Hope you enjoyed!

You can find Crystal Clay in our shops:

What a Wine Glass!

Trying to think of what to get that wine lover? Or even make for yourself?
We have come up with a wine lovers solution!

Materials used:
Crystal Clay
Wine Glass
E6000 glue
Chaton Swarvoski Crystals
Flat Back Swarvoski Crystals
Jesse James Dress It Up Buttons
Wire Cutters

Making these glasses are easier than it may look! 
Simply start with a blank wine glass. Grab your crystal clay parts A and B. Mix them together very well (according to package directions). You will have 60-90 minutes work time once mixed. Now, cover the base of your glass. 

Next, cut the loop or shank off the back of your buttons (if the buttons contain them). We used wire cutters to do this. Then, place them into the clay in your desired location. Once placed, press them firmly into the clay so that they will hold once clay dries. 

Now it's time for the crystal chatons. Place these in the clay in the same manner as the buttons. Once all are placed, you can use a soft cloth with a dab of baby oil to smooth finger prints from the clay. 

The last step is to glue on the flat crystals. We added them to the stem as well as the cup area. Allow 12-24 hours for the Crystal Clay to cure. 
Then enjoy!

*NOTE* hand wash only.
